Abstract: U.S. Census Grids (Summary File 1), 2000 contain grids of demographic and socioeconomic data
from the year 2000 U.S. census in ASCII and geotiff formats. 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 (population, households, and housing variables). 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 the United States and Puerto Rico for data integration.
