United States Census Bureau

On August 12, 2021, the United States Census Bureau released the first of two ‘versions’ of the redistricting Data Files. The first version format is referred to as ‘Legacy’ format files. This requires some necessary resources such as statistical software and sufficient computer storage for large files.

The Minnesota State Demographic Center

Their office has reformatted the most-requested data into easy-to-use CSV files, so that the legislature and others in Minnesota can use the data for redistricting work. The census blocks from the redistricting file have been added together to obtain the total population of townships, cities, counties, and tribal areas. For some geographies they have included an additional codebook and data file with 2010 and 2020 data.
