Title:
2020 Census State Redistricting Data - Group Quarters Population for Block Groups
Abstract:
US Census 2020 File03 (Table P5), Subjects Group Quarters Population by Major Group Quarters Type. A unique logical record number (LOGRECNO in the geographic header) is assigned to all files for a specific geographic entity. This field is the key that links records across all four files. Besides the logical record number, other identifying fields also are carried over from the geographic header file to the table files. These are file identification (FILEID), state/U.S. abbreviation (STUSAB), characteristic iteration (CHARITER), and characteristic iteration file sequence number (CIFSN). The geographic header is standard across all electronic data products from the 2020 Census. Note that some fields in the Redistricting products are not filled. For example, the CHARITER field is used in other 2020 Census products; in the 2020 Census State Redistricting Data (Public Law 94-171) Summary File, it is always coded as 000, GEOIDs are Census Block Groups. For table P5 details refer to the online census documentation: 2020 Census State Redistricting Data (Public Law 94-171) Summary File
