Subject: Re: Cooperative work on 2000 Census data
I posted record counts for each of the 2,080 files comprising the SF1 census
data, on my site.
The data is in a SAS table of 52 rows and 40 columns. The columns
correspond to Segments; SEG01-SEG39, GeoHeader and the rows are states.
Notice that Seg12-Seg36 columns are identical with totals of 724,015 records,
while all other columns have 9,541,315 records. Notice also that within
each group the states counts are identical.
The entire SF1 data only requires 9.85Gig ( using compress=binary in
40 SAS tables), each table contains all States, ie one table per segment.
I have added closest ZIp+4 based on latitude and longitude, along with Census
geocode ( bases on Zip+4 ) to all tables.
I am thinking about posting checksums so that other users can validate
of the data.
