The Minnesota Population Center is pleased to announce the release of the new National Historical Geographic Information System (NHGIS) website, including:
A redesigned front page providing access to new FAQs, user guides and data documentation
A redesigned data extract system that allows users to:
download multiple years of data in one extract
download multiple geographic levels (states, counties, etc.) in one extract
constrain or expand data searches flexibly by specifying any combination of geographic levels, years, topics, or datasets
The new site also provides Census 2010 Redistricting Data with corresponding 2010 shapefiles. More new data from the American Community Survey and 2010 Summary File 1 will be added throughout the year.
Explore the new site now!
Please note: the original NHGIS website remains accessible, but will be taken offline later this fall, after which users will no longer be able to access previously requested extracts. If you still need to download some requested data or would like to revise or resubmit older extracts through the original site, please do so in the near future.
