Demographic Data - TIGER/Line Shapefile, 2010, 2010 county, Miami-Dade County, FL, 2010 Census Block County-based

Metadata Updated: August 19, 2017

The TIGER/Line Files are shapefiles and related database files (.dbf) that are an extract of selected geographic and cartographic information from the U.S. Census Bureau's Master Address File / Topologically Integrated Geographic Encoding and Referencing (MAF/TIGER) Database (MTDB). The MTDB represents a seamless national file with no overlaps or gaps between parts, however, each TIGER/Line File is designed to stand alone as an independent data set, or they can be combined to cover the entire nation. Census Blocks are statistical areas bounded on all sides by visible features, such as streets, roads, streams, and railroad tracks, and/or by nonvisible boundaries such as city, town, township, and county limits, and short line-of-sight extensions of streets and roads. Census blocks are relatively small in area; for example, a block in a city bounded by streets. However, census blocks in remote areas are often large and irregular and may even be many square miles in area. A common misunderstanding is that data users think census blocks are used geographically to build all other census geographic areas, rather all other census geographic areas are updated and then used as the primary constraints, along with roads and water features, to delineate the tabulation blocks. As a result, all 2010 Census blocks nest within every other 2010 Census geographic area, so that Census Bureau statistical data can be tabulated at the block level and aggregated up to the appropriate geographic areas. Census blocks cover all territory in the United States, Puerto Rico, and the Island Areas (American Samoa, Guam, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, and the U.S. Virgin Islands). Blocks are the smallest geographic areas for which the Census Bureau publishes data from the decennial census. A block may consist of one or more faces. Block10Pop_pnt contains a centroid of every census block. It is a derivative product of the polygon layer Block10Pop. This census data layer has been imported into the Miami-Dade County ArcSDE infrastructure and re-projected to: Projected Coordinate System: NAD_1983_StatePlane_Florida_East_FIPS_0901_Feet Projection: Transverse_Mercator False_Easting: 656166.66666667 False_Northing: 0.00000000 Central_Meridian: -81.00000000 Scale_Factor: 0.99994118 Latitude_Of_Origin: 24.33333333 Linear Unit: Foot_US Population figures have been appended to the end of the feature classes attribute table: Pop2010, HU2010, HISPAN, WHITENH, BLACKNH, AMERINDIANNH, ASIANNH, HAWIANNH, OTHERNH, and MULTIRACE. Definitions can be found in the census documentation.
