Census Redistricting Data Program - Block Boundary Suggestion Project
Authors: James Whitehorne
Phase 1 of the Census Redistricting Data Program, the Block Boundary Suggestion Project, begins in December of 2015. This program allows an official state liaison to influence the eventual 2020 Census tabulation block universe. This helps ensure they get the small area tabulations they need for legislative redistricting. Now a digital exchange using GIS, this discussion explains the program, timing, and efforts to facilitate communication between counties and the official state liaison.
