Let Caliper Adjust Your PL 94-171 Data if You Require Adjustments for Military Personnel, College Students, or Prison Populations

NEWTON, MASSACHUSETTS (USA) - Caliper Corporation is pleased to announce the availability of PL 94-171 data adjustment services. Some states require adjustments to Census Public Law 94-171 population data to account for prison population, college students, military personnel, or other factors. For example, Kansas requires that the population figures reflect college students and military personnel at their places of permanent residence, Maryland adjusts population counts based on prison population, and Pennsylvania splits Census blocks.

This year Caliper has been awarded a contract with the state of Kansas to adjust the Federal 2010 Census Public Law 94-171 population data and produce a set of adjusted population figures for use in state legislative redistricting. Caliper will adjust the population figures to count college students and military personnel at their places of permanent residence. Such persons with different current and permanent 2010 Census block codes need to be updated. Caliper will move each respondent from their current location to their permanent location, updating all the appropriate tables based upon their age, race and Hispanic origin status.

Please contact us if your state is planning such an adjustment and you would like assistance. You can visit the Caliper website, email, or call Caliper Sales at 617-527-4700.
