The U.S. Census Bureau today released the 2020 Census redistricting data files in an “easy-to-use” format. This includes population totals and other data collected during the decennial census at the county, municipal and census tract/block level.
The information released today is identical to the data previously released on Aug. 12 but is presented in an easily accessible format on the Census Bureau’s website that requires no additional steps or expertise needed to access the data. Read more here.
The 2020 information is also now available on the Census Bureau’s data tool website at data.census.gov.
In Alabama, the Legislature initiates and completes the redistricting process after every decennial census is taken. The Legislature’s Reapportionment Committee is leading the effort with the assistance of the Legislative Reapportionment Office.
