TIGER/Line Shapefile, 2014, state, Utah, Current State Legislative District (SLD) Upper Chamber State-based Shapefile

Metadata Updated: October 8, 2015

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.

           State Legislative Districts (SLDs) are the areas from which members are elected to State legislatures. The SLDs embody the upper (senate) and lower
           (house) chambers of the state legislature. Nebraska has a unicameral legislature and the District of Columbia has a single council, both of which the
           Census Bureau treats as upper-chamber legislative areas for the purpose of data presentation; there are no data by SLDL for either Nebraska or the
           District of Columbia. A unique three-character census code, identified by State participants, is assigned to each SLD within a state. In Connecticut,
           Illinois, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Ohio, and Puerto Rico, the Redistricting Data Program (RDP) participant did not define the
           SLDs to cover all of the state or state equivalent area. In these areas with no SLDs defined, the code "ZZZ" has been assigned, which is treated as a
           single SLD for purposes of data presentation. 

           The boundaries of the 2014 State legislative districts were provided by state-level participants through the RDP and reflect the districts used to elect
           members in or prior to the November 2014 election.
