Statewide Census County Subdivisions, New York State (Shapefile : 1992)
MapsheetNew York State State
ProviderU.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.

DescriptionAbstract
County subdivisions are the primary divisions of counties and statistically equivalent entities for the reporting of decennial census data. They include census county divisions, census subareas, and minor civil divisions. Each county subdivision is assigned a five-digit Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) code in alphabetical order within the state. CUGIR, the Cornell University Geospatial Information Repository, using US Department of Commerce, Bureau of the Census data, developed the GIS data set version of 1990 Census TIGER/Line files for New York State.
Purpose
These files were developed to enable a user to see the geographic component from 1990 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.
