Advance Group Quarters Summary File Dataset

The Census Bureau, in response to federal and state officials as well as other data users, is providing an  early version of Table P42 from the 2010 Census Summary File 1, showing counts for seven types of group  quarters. No characteristics of the group quarters population are provided.

This early release of data on the group quarters population may be beneficial to many data users including  those in the redistricting community who must consider whether to include or exclude certain populations  in redrawing boundaries as a result of state legislation. It will permit state and local redistricting officials  to overlay this file with the 2010 Census Redistricting Data (Public Law 94-171) Summary File data.
