CUGIR dataset information
|Title||Census Block Groups, New York State (Shapefile : 1999)|
|Provider||U.S. Census Bureau
Beginning with the 2000 census, CUGIR adopted a policy of only providing decadal updates to census data sets. These data are derived from the US Census bureau's TIGER/Line files, and the Census Bureau releases periodic updates in between decadal censuses. The significance of these updates varies, and it is the user's responsibility to determine whether they should obtain updated data from the Census Bureau.
Note also that the Census began distributing TIGER/Line data as shapefiles on March 31, 2008.

These data are a selection of geographic and cartographic information from the 1998 TIGER/Line files detailing block groups. This dataset includes geographic block groups, tabulation block groups, and block group number record locations. CUGIR, The Cornell University Geospatial Information Repository, using US Department of Commerce, Bureau of the Census data, developed the GIS data set versions of 1998 Census TIGER/Line files for 10 coverages for each of the 62 counties in New York State.
These files were developed to enable a user to see the geographic component from 1998 TIGER/Line Census files. They can be used to join demographic data for use in conjunction with other Census data in geographic and demographic analysis.
