Census geography: Bridging data from prior years to the 2010 tract boundaries>>Use the LTDB>>

Use the LTDB: Backwards LTDB

Some researchers have reasons to use 2000 as the base year for their research. To facilitate their work we offer a backwards LTDB that makes it possible to take data in 2010 boundaries and estimate values within 2000 tract boundaries.

At this time we do not provide a standard set of 2010 census data or 2008-2012 ACS data within 2000 boundaries. Users will need to use the tools that we provide (a STATA program and a 2000-2010 crosswalk file) in conjunction with their own input data file.

For instructions on the use of these files, please review our web pages on the crosswalk file and the use of STATA programs.
