Summary
Abstract: U.S. Population Grids (Summary File 1), 2000: Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas, 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 (population, households, and housing variables). 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).

Purpose: To provide gridded demographic data, including characteristics of age, race, ethnicity, and housing, for Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas.
