The U.S. Census Bureau announced today that 2010 Census population totals and demographic characteristics have been released for communities in all 50 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico. These data have provided the first look at population counts for small areas and race, Hispanic origin, voting age and housing unit data released from the 2010 Census. With the release of data for all the states, national-level counts of these characteristics are now available.
Talk of the Sound is pulling up all the data but the headline is that New Rochelle grew from 72,182 to 77,062 since 2000.
The Census Bureau has met its statutory obligation to provide redistricting data to the 50 states no later than April 1 of the year following the census. The delivery of these files is ahead of schedule, consistent with previous 2010 Census operations.
The official 2010 Census Redistricting Data Summary File can be used to redraw federal, state and local legislative districts under Public Law 94-171. The census data are used by state officials to realign congressional and state legislative districts in their states, taking into account population shifts since the 2000 Census.
