WASHINGTON, March 14, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The following is being issued by the U.S. Census Bureau:

What:  Today, the Census Bureau shipped local 2010 Census data to the governor and leadership of the state legislature in Alaska. After confirmation of receipt, usually within 24 hours of shipment, the Census Bureau will issue a news release with five custom tables of data for the state. Because of time zone differences and the increased time required to ship to Alaska, the data will be released to the public Wednesday, around 2 p.m. EDT. At that time, the full set of data will be available via FTP download at http://www2.census.gov/census_2010/01-Redistricting_File--PL_94-171/. Within 24 hours after release, the data will be posted on the Census Bureau's new American FactFinder site http://factfinder2.census.gov.

The data will include summaries of population totals, as well as data on race, Hispanic origin and voting age for multiple geographies within the state, such as census blocks, tracts, voting districts, cities, counties and school districts.

According to Public Law 94-171, the Census Bureau must provide redistricting data to the 50 states no later than April 1 of the year following the census. As a result, the Census Bureau is delivering the data state-by-state on a flow basis in February and March. All states will receive their data by April 1, 2011.
