Summary
Abstract: U.S. Population Grids (Summary File 3), 2000: Alabama, Louisiana, and Mississippi, Alpha Version contain an ArcInfo workspace with grids of demographic data from the year 2000 census. The grids have a resolution of 30 arc-seconds (0.0083 decimal degrees), or approximately 1 square km. The gridded variables are based on census block geography from Census 2000 TIGER/Line Files and census variables (income, poverty, education, housing age). This dataset is produced by the Columbia University Center for International Earth Science Information Network.

The data in ARC/INFO Workspace format are available from the NASA Socioeconomic Data and Applications Center (SEDAC).
