Census of Population and Housing, 2010 [United States]: Redistricting Data (Public Law 94-171) Summary File (ICPSR 33441)
Principal Investigator(s): United States Department of Commerce. Bureau of the Census
This data collection contains summary statistics on population and housing subjects derived from questions on the 2010 Census questionnaire. Population counts for the total population and for the population 18 years and over are presented in four tables: (1) population of all ages by race, (2) population 18 years and over by race, (3) Hispanic or Latino population of all ages and not Hispanic or Latino population of all ages by race, and (4) Hispanic or Latino population ages 18 years and over and not Hispanic or Latino population ages 18 years and by race. The data also contain one table showing the number of occupied and vacant housing units. With 1 variable per table cell, plus additional variables with geographic information, the collection comprises 156 data files, 3 for each state, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico.
The tables are tabulated for multiple levels of observation, called "summary levels" in the Census Bureau's nomenclature, including states, congressional districts, counties, places, voting districts, census tracts, block groups, and blocks. These redistricting data only cover within-state summary levels. Summary levels that cross state boundaries are provided in a separate collection: Census of Population and Housing, 2010 [United States]: National Summary File of Redistricting Data (ICPSR 33442).
Fifty-four ZIP archives constitute the collection. There is an archive for each state, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico, and for the convenience of those who need all of the data, a separate ZIP archive with all 156 data files. The Census Bureau produced a codebook and other documentation files, a Microsoft Access database shell, and SAS setups for this collection, all of which are contained in the last ZIP archive.
