Census Redistricting Data to be released February 2011

Entry Categories: Federal Documents   News  

The first data to be released from a Decennial Census is always the state Redistricting Data (P.L. 94-171) Summary File, named for the Public Law which requires it to be sent to the President by the end of January following the Census. The Census Bureau has issed a schedule of planned release dates for data products which indicates that the P.L. 94-171 file will be publicly released in February 2011.

The state redistricting file is always anxiously awaited, and is used by states to redraw Congressional District and other electoral distric boundaries based on population counts and apportionment laws. It tends to be controversial and fraught with accusations of gerrymandering by the party in control of the state legislatures.

The complete schedule of planned releases is available at

It's hard to imagine anyone in this country NOT knowing about the Gulf Oil spill. In fact, it may feel like a case of too much depressing information and not enough encouraging news. The Minerals Management Service is now facing intense criticism for failing to properly regulate offshore drilling.

Those seeking news and information about the disaster as well as other programs supervised by the MMM can visit it's website at http://www.mms.gov
The site links to the multi-agency Deepwater Horizon Response site http://www.deepwaterhorizonresponse.com , the "unified command" for news, film footage, claim filing, etc.
