Statistical Information Staff
The U.S. Commerce Department's Census Bureau today released the first detailed demographic data based on Census 2000 questions asked of all people and about every housing unit in the state of Maine.
The electronic file (Summary File 1) includes statistical data on the following population items: sex, age, race, Hispanic or Latino origin, household relationship, and household and family characteristics. Housing items include occupancy status and tenure (whether the unit is owner- or renter-occupied).
Summary File 1 contains 286 tables for states, counties, county subdivisions, places, census tracts, ZIP code tabulation areas, as well as congressional districts for the 106th Congress and, where applicable, American Indian and Alaska Native areas and Hawaiian home lands. For most subjects, data for census block groups and blocks also are shown.
As each state is released, the set of compressed ASCII files will be made available for download from the Census Bureau's new search-and-retrieval database, American FactFinder® <http://factfinder2.census.gov> and via its FTP server <http://www2.census.gov/census_2000>. At the same time, these files will be available for purchase from the Census Bureau's Customer Services Center on recordable CD-ROMs that will not have software. In addition, the Census Bureau plans to subsequently release a value-added CD-ROM product with a proprietary data format and software. It, too, may be purchased from Customer Services. When all states have been released, the Census Bureau will put the entire SF1 for all states on one or two DVDs.
A weekly release schedule will be posted on a special page on the Census Bureau's Web site at <http://www.census.gov/census2000/sumfile1.html>. For information about ordering Census 2000 products, contact Customer Services on 301-457-4100 or e-mail <email@example.com>.
