The core TIGER/Line Files and Shapefiles do not include demographic data, but they do contain geographic entity codes (GEOIDs) that can be linked to the Census Bureau’s demographic data, available on data.census.gov.
All legal boundaries and names are as of January 1, 2012. Released August 17, 2012.
State-based address locater files are available to download for each State, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico, to assist customers with their geocoding needs. These address locator files reference 2012 Address Feature (ADDFEAT) TIGER/Line Shapefile data, which contain all address range to feature name and address range to edge database relationships.
