Summary File 1

Demographic data down to the block level!

Availability: Summary File 1 is available as a two DVD set (V1-D10-S1S1-08-US1). The DVDs contain the 2010 Census Data Engine retrieval software allowing users to manipulate, display, and download data from the file. Summary File 1 is also available in American FactFinder, and in ASCII format through our FTP site.

Discs:

  • U.S. Summary. DVD containing all substate data in Summary File 1. Geography: states, metropolitan statistical areas, counties, county subdivisions, places (i.e. cities and census designated places), ZIP Code Tabulation Areas®, congressional districts (111th Congress), American Indian and Alaska Native Areas, Hawaiian Home Lands, census tracts, census block groups, and census blocks.
  • National File. DVD containing data for larger geographic areas. Geography: United States, regions, divisions, states, counties, county subdivisions, places (i.e. cities and census designated places), metropolitan statistical areas, ZIP Code Tabulation Areas®, congressional districts (111th Congress), American Indian and Alaska Native Areas, and Hawaiian Home Lands. Users needing totals for geographical areas that are in more than one state (e.g., American Indian reservations and metro areas) will find them easier to obtain from this file than from the U.S. Summary file (see above).
