TIGER Geodatabases

2013 TIGER Geodatabases

TIGER Geodatabases are spatial extracts from the Census Bureau’s MAF/TIGER database for use with Esri’s ArcGIS.  The geodatabases contain national coverage (for geographic boundaries or features) or state coverage (boundaries within state).

These files do not include demographic data, but they contain geographic entity codes that can be linked to the Census Bureau’s demographic data, available on American FactFinder.

See the documentation for the description of geographic boundaries and features contained in each geodatabase.  Further details of the geographic boundaries and features can be found in the TIGER/Line Shapefiles technical documentation.  These files will be released up to two times a year.


These files are large. Select a layer below or connect directly to our ftp site to download the files.  The files are compressed (size is of compressed file).  We strongly suggest you access these files through our site using an ftp client (anonymous log-in and password).

Download these files from our FTP site
