When Will I Receive My 2020 Redistricting Data?

2020 census geography was delivered to all 50 states by February 12, 2021.
 
Due to the series of natural disasters and the worldwide pandemic 2020, the Census Bureau delayed delivery of apportionment numbers to the President of the United States until April 30, 2021.
 

The legacy file format of the first 2020 Public Law 94-171 data (100% count) release (August 12, 2021) is the format used by the Census Bureau in previous decades. For the 2020 Census, the Bureau also released the data in another format (September 16, 2021) for direct use with database and spreadsheet applications.

The data provided with Maptitude for Redistricting is sourced from the first (legacy format) release from the Census Bureau. Please note this Census Bureau statement:

“The data included in the August and September deliveries will be identical. States can use either the August delivery or the September delivery as appropriate, taking their own statutes and constitutional requirements into account. The Census Bureau considers both releases to be official and fit for use.”

The Public Law 94-171 data were made available to Maptitude for Redistricting users on August 16th, within just a few days of the August 12th release by the Census Bureau.
