2010 Census

2010 Census Local-Level Data — In February and March, we are beginning to see the portrait of America take shape, as each state receives local-level 2010 Census data on race, Hispanic origin, the voting age population and housing units. As required by law, the Census Bureau provides these key demographic data to the states (on a state-by-state flow basis) so state governments can redraw the boundaries of their congressional and state legislative districts. The data began rolling out the first week of February, with announcements about which states will be included in the following week's data releases. States to be released the week of Feb. 28: Delaware, North Carolina, Wyoming, Nebraska and Kansas. For further details, see our press kit at: <http://2010.census.gov/news/press-kits/redistricting.html>.
Note: The Public Information Office Call Center is remaining open for media calls until 5:00 p.m. (in your state's time zone) as each P.L. 94-171 data are released.

2010 Census Interactive Maps — As the 2010 Census redistricting files are issued, the Census Bureau is also releasing interactive state maps showing county-level population change from 1960 to 2010, as well as state-level data on race and Hispanic or Latino origin for 2010. The widget can be embedded on your website and will update as additional states are released. It can be found at <http://2010.census.gov/2010census/data/>.
