Census 2010-2020 Redistricting Data: State & County Populations by Age Grouping and Race/Ethnicity

<Download Excel Dataset> of Census 2010 and 2020 Redistricting Data used for the October 2021 report, The Increasing Nuance in the Racial and Ethnic Identity of U.S. West Youth Populations, 2010-2020.

Data compiled by WICHE from 2010 and 2020 Census Redistricting Data files at https://www.census.gov/programs-surveys/decennial-census/about/rdo/summary-files.html. The Census source files contain many jurisdictional levels; only state and county level data covering the 15 WICHE member states are included in this dataset (state level charts are viewable in interactive charts at https://knocking.wiche.edu/census2020-west-youth/). The data released so far do not cover the U.S. Pacific Territories and Freely Associated States; they will be included as they become available. This file was updated as of September 25, 2021.

These data are more recent than the actual, reported data that were published with the December 2020 10th edition of Knocking at the College Door. No new projections are provided at this time. The projections from the December 2020 10th edition, and data for school years preceding the data in this file and for other categories (e.g., private schools) are available in the data files on the 10th Edition Projections page and charted in the Profiles. The data in this file follow the same format for combination with those files. This file was updated as of June 30, 2021.
