The 2020 Census Redistricting Data (P.L. 94-171) Summary Files will be published on the Census Bureau’s File Transfer Protocol (FTP) site shortly after the start of the news conference. This will be followed by the release of the 2020 Census Demographic Data Map Viewer (Map Viewer). The Map Viewer will include demographic data (including population counts, population change, race & ethnicity, housing, and group quarters total population) for states, counties, and census tracts.
In addition to the Map Viewer, the Bureau will release the 2020 P.L.94-171 total population counts for select geographies in the QuickFacts application. Links to both applications will be provided on the Decennial Census P.L. 94-171 Redistricting Data Summary Files webpage.
Tableau visualizations will also be produced, having state and county data display and ranking capabilities. The accordion menu, which is currently on the bottom of www.census.gov/rdo, will move over to the bottom of the Decennial Census P.L. 94-171 Redistricting Data Summary Files webpage on release day. The Tableau visualizations will be published in the accordion menu that says “Visualizations”.
