New 2020 Census Data Released

The U.S. Census Bureau released the 2020 Census Demographic and Characteristics File (DHC). These products provide the next round of data available from the 2020 Census, adding more detail to the population counts and basic demographic and housing statistics previously released.

This release includes population counts (total, by race and Hispanic ethnicity, age, and sex) as well as housing counts. These data are available through the U.S. Census Bureau’s data dissemination platform

PA Census 2020 Data Portal

Today, in conjunction with the release of the 2020 DHC data, the PA State Data Center launched the Census 2020 Data Portal. The portal serves as a tool to host data localized to Pennsylvania and also provides guidance, overviews, and interactive reports/visualizations to help users make sense of the Census 2020 data.

Existing data, resources, and reports/visualizations, such as those for the Redistricting (P.L. 1994) data, have been added to the portal, and more will come soon!
