Summary
Abstract: U.S. Population Grids (Summary File 1), 2000: Houston Metropolitan Statistical Area, Alpha Version contains an ARC/INFO Workspace with grids of

demographic data from the 2000 census. The grids have a resolution of 7.5 arc-seconds (0.002075 decimal degrees), or approximately 250 square meters. The gridded variables are based on

census block geography from Census 2000 TIGER/Line Files and census variables (population, households, and housing variables) from Summary File 1. This dataset is produced by the Columbia

University Center for International Earth Science Information Network (CIESIN).


Purpose: To provide gridded demographic data, including characteristics of age, race, ethnicity, and housing, for metropolitan statistical areas at a finer

resolution than is available in the 30 arc-second grids used for the United States as a whole.
