Block Equivalency File

These BEFs are the whole 2010 census tabulation block representations of the plans as submitted to the U.S. Census Bureau. In instances where plans included split blocks, it was requested that the state liaison identify a single district to assign the split block for use by the U.S. Census Bureau for data tabulation purposes. Each .ZIP file contains a national block equivalency file and individual state files for those states who reported changes during this collection cycle. In some instances, those reported changes were cosmetic and did not result in an actual change to the whole block assignments. The fields in these files should be imported as text to preserve leading zeros.

This split block listing contains a table of all split blocks submitted by the states in their 116th congressional district plans and to which district those split blocks are tabulated.

Summary File

The 116th Congressional District Summary File (CD116) contains the data compiled from the questions asked of all people and about every housing unit in the 2010 Census. Population items include sex, age, race, Hispanic or Latino origin, household relationship, household type, household size, family type, family size, and group quarters. Housing items include occupancy status, vacancy status, and tenure (whether a housing unit is owner-occupied or renter-occupied). The file contains subject content identical to that shown in the 2010 Census Summary File 1 (SF 1), with the exclusion of those tables originally produced at the tract level or above (PCT, HCT, PCO tables). This change was necessary to ensure that these data tables comply with the U.S. Census Bureau’s current disclosure avoidance policies. The abbreviated CD116 provides population and housing characteristics for the total population, population totals for the major race and Hispanic or Latino groups, and population and housing characteristics repeated by the major race and Hispanic or Latino groups.
