United States Census Data FAQ

A. When will data from the census be available?

For data products required by law [Title 13, United States Code], we will deliver the products on or before the specified dates. These data products include delivery of the state population counts to the President within nine months of Census Day (on or before December 31, 2000). These counts are used to reapportion the seats in the U.S. House of Representatives.

Under the Voting Rights Act, the Census Bureau is required to provide the states with race and ethnic data for small geographic areas to be used for the redistricting process specified in P.L. 94-171 by April 1, 2001.  After discussing and consulting with stakeholders and advisors, including the Department of Justice, the Census Bureau has decided to meet the needs of redistricting by providing the sixty-three categories of race in combination with Hispanic/Latino categories tabulated for both total population and people of eigteen years of age or over.

Other products will be released on a flow basis from June, 2001, through September, 2003.

B. How will data from Census 2000 be made available?

Census 2000 data will be disseminated mainly using a new data retrieval system called the American FactFinder (AFF). Census 2000 data products will be available on a flow basis beginning January 2001. The American FactFinder will be accessible to the widest possible array of users through the Internet, through intermediaries, including the nearly 1,800 State Data Centers and affiliates, the 1,400 Federal Depository libraries and other libraries, universities, and private organizations.

The American FactFinder will find and retrieve the information needed at the geography of choice from some of the largest census databases. The American FactFinder is accessible directly from the Census Bureau's new website.

Census 2000 will offer five categories of products:

                    Demographic Profiles for both 100 percent and sample data
                    (AFF; CD-ROM; print); and Congressional District Profiles, for
                    both 100 percent and sample data( AFF; CD-ROM; print by special request).
