U.S. Census Grids (Summary File 3), 2000: Metropolitan Statistical Areas
Entry ID: CIESIN_SEDAC_USCG_SF3MSA


Summary
Abstract: U.S. Population Grids (Summary File 3), 2000: Metropolitan Statistical Areas contain grids of demographic and socioeconomic data from the year 2000 U.S.

census in ASCII and geotiff formats for 50 metropolitan statistical areas with at least one million in population. 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). 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 income, education, and housing, for metropolitan statistical areas at a finer

resolution than is available in the 7.5 arc-second grids used for the United States as a whole.
