description:
For this dataset, congressional district records were extracted from Summary Tape File 3D files and combined into a single file with the congressional district as the unit of analysis. While the 51 STF 3D files contain several levels of geographic hierarchy--state, congressional district, county or county equivalent, places with 10,000 or more inhabitants, and minor civil divisions with 10,000 or more inhabitants--with one file per state, this extract file presents data for one geographical level, the congressional district, and contains records for all congressional districts in the nation in one physical file. The 436 congressional districts described in the file are defined according to the boundaries established for the 98th Congress. Summary Tape File 3 consists of detailed tabulations of the nation's population and housing characteristics and is composed of five parts: STF 3A, STF 3B, STF 3C, STF 3D, and STF 3H. These files contain sample data inflated to represent the total population but also include 100-percent counts and unweighted sample counts for some variables. Complete-count data are supplied for demographic characteristics such as age, race, sex, marital status, and Spanish origin, and for housing information such as as the number of units at the address, number of rooms, occupancy status, tenure, property value, and plumbing facilities. Sample data are provided for other items including education, language, ancestry, employment, transportation, and income.
