The Commerce Department's Census Bureau began releasing on a state-by-state basis the Redistricting Census 2000 TIGER/Line® files, designed to support the needs of state redistricting officials. The files contain geographic data for all 50 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico, and will be available within the next several weeks. It should be noted that these files do not contain Census 2000 population data but will allow state legislatures to begin preparation for the analysis of the Census 2000 redistricting data scheduled for release no later than April 1, 2001.
The TIGER/Line files are extracts of selected geographic and cartographic information from the Census Bureau's TIGER (Topologically Integrated Geographic Encoding and Referencing) database. They are the first release of the Census 2000 tabulation areas, including the census tract and block numbers that are the foundation for the redistricting process.
Documentation, including a list of which states are available, may be obtained by clicking on the "TIGER" link on the Census Bureau's Internet homepage http://www.census.gov.
Information about other products associated with the Census 2000 Public Law 94-171 Redistricting Data Program also may be obtained by contacting the Census Redistricting Data Office via e-mail at RDO@census.gov.
