WASHINGTON, Feb. 2, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The following was released today by the U.S. Census Bureau:
What: Today, the Census Bureau shipped local 2010 Census data to the Virginia state leadership. 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. At that time, the full set of data will be available simultaneously via FTP download on the Redistricting Data Office page <http://www.census.gov/rdo/data>. 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. These data will be presented 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.
