This set of 2 CDs consists of the The Public Law (P.L.) 94-171 (Redistricting) Summary File Dress Rehearsal of the 2000 Decennial Census of Population. The objective of the Public Law (P.L.) 94-171 Program for the Census 2000 Dress Rehearsal was to produce a prototype of the 2000 data that the Census Bureau will provide to states to meet the requirements of P.L. 94-171. This law, enacted in 1975, directs the Census Bureau to make special preparations to provide redistricting data needed by th e 50 states. It specifies that within a year following Census Day, the Census Bureau must transmit special population data desired by each state for the purpose of legislative apportionment or redistricting to the governor and the legislative leaders, in a nonpartisan manner. This file contains summary statistics on population and housing subjects. These data were derived from the basic questions asked of all people and about every housing unit (referred to as the 100-percent questions). Population subjects include: age, race, sex, Hispanic or Latino, and relationship. The housing subjects include occupancy/vacancy status and tenure. Generally, this file provides data for the Census 2000 Dress Rehearsal sites in a hierarchical sequence down to the block level. A hierarchical presentation shows the geographic areas in a superior/subordinate structure and is depicted by indenting the lines. The hierarchy for this file is shown below.
