Tools to assist you when working with the 2010 Census [P.L. 94-171] Summary File data.
Due to session constraints in American FactFinder, users who want to download all blocks within a state should use the FTP site for their files. Technical support in the form of readme files and records layouts are available for SAS, Microsoft ACCESS, and for the traditional Decennial summary file format.
NOTE: In some large states, the combined size of the data tables may exceed the size limitation of Access. This can be overcome by using multiple Access databases and then linking the tables from each of the databases. Please contact 301-763-4039 should you encounter this problem and need assistance.
