Census Announces Redistricting Info Release Date

Information will be released starting January 19th, ending no later than February 28th.

The U.S. Census Bureau announced Thursday that congressional redistricting information and support products would begin to be released to the states, as well as the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico, on January 19. The products include files, maps, block assignments, and tables for geographic data comparison.

The release from the bureau stated, “These products consist of 2020 Census geography with the newly created 2020 Census blocks and updated block groups, census tracts, voting districts, and current boundaries for legal governments and school districts.”

The president’s administration had requested information be provided from the census data regarding the number of undocumented aliens among the U.S. population. However, Director Steven Dillingham has deferred the effort, stating that there is not enough time to quantify the information.

“Presently, the Census Bureau’s highest priority is to successfully complete 2020 Census data processing in order to produce a complete and accurate count for the nation,” the director said.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For the Census Bureau to accurately calculate the total number of people in the country. 
  • That Director Dillingham would be led by the Lord as he serves the Bureau through the end of 2021.
  • That the transition in administrations would be effective with regard to the census and redistricting.
