TIGER/Line Shapefile, 2013, Series Information File for the Current American Indian Tribal Subdivision (AITS) National Shapefile

Metadata Updated: November 21, 2014

The TIGER/Line shapefiles and related database files (.dbf) 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 shapefile is designed to stand alone as an independent data set, or they can be combined to cover the entire nation.

      American Indian tribal subdivisions are administrative subdivisions of federally recognized American Indian reservations/off-reservation trust lands or
      Oklahoma tribal statistical areas (OTSAs).  These entities are internal units of self-government and/or administration that serve social, cultural, and/or
      economic purposes for the American Indian tribe or tribes on the reservations/off-reservation trust lands or OTSAs.  The Census Bureau obtains the boundary
      and attribute information for tribal subdivisions on federally recognized American Indian reservations and off-reservation trust lands from federally
      recognized tribal governments through the Census Bureau's Boundary and Annexation Survey (BAS).  For the 2010 Census, the boundaries for tribal subdivisions
      on OTSAs were also obtained from federally recognized tribal governments through the Tribal Statistical Areas Program (TSAP).  Note that tribal subdivisions
      do not exist on all reservations/off-reservation trust lands or OTSAs, rather only where they were submitted to the Census Bureau by the federally recognized
      tribal government for that area.

      The boundaries for American Indian tribal subdivisions are as of January 1 of the public shapefile release year, as reported by the federally recognized
      tribal governments through the Census Bureau's Boundary and Annexation Survey (BAS).
       The boundaries for tribal subdivisions on OTSAs are those reported as of January 1, 2010 through TSAP.
