Census 2020 Updates

In September 2021, the US Census began releasing Census 2020 data as part of the Public Law 94-171 redistricting data update.  This is a partial data release and includes population totals, race, Hispanic ethnicity and some housing data. Detailed population totals by age and sex were not part of this update.

As part of our CDXZipStream October 2021 release we’ve updated the databases where this data could be applied.  This includes the CDXState, CDXCBSA, CDXCounty, and CDXPlace databases. Please note that the Census has not yet released data for the ZCTA zip code geography (Zip Code Tabulation Areas).  So we have not updated our premium Zip Code tables with any census 2020 data. These demographic databases are part of the CDXZipStream Premium and CDXZipStream Premium ACS products

A summary of the specific database changes can be found in the following file. Rather than leave in census 2010 results for the unavailable fields, we’ve added 2019 American Community Survey data instead so that you will have the most recent results.  Other fields were also updated with the latest data such as population estimates, unemployment and other business statistics.

A summary of the US Census future release dates for additional data can be found at https://www.census.gov/programs-surveys/popest/about/schedule.html.
