Did you catch our podcast episode with Gps Unm Edu demographer Dr. Jacqueline Miller on NM population and migration? A lot of the numbers we discuss (which are displayed in the graphics below) are based off the U.S. Census Bureau's 2019 ACS 1-yr estimates, which samples just 1% of the population. We're so excited to see how these compare to the 2020 Census data coming out soon.

Census Numbers For Dividing Up House Seats Delayed Until April 30, Bureau Says

There are a lot of questions on the 2020 Census data release right now. Data Bank Manager Suzan Reagan breaks down what you need to know: New Mexico redistricting must be non-partisan and appointed by both NM Chambers. They are required to finish redistricting 1 year after the Census data has been received. Count on NM data aficionado’s to be looking closely at the data as soon as it is available publicly. This data is used to benchmark many other public data series.

Data will be sent to:
o Governors
o Legislative leadership
o Redistricting Commissions if they exist.

Method of deliver:
o Physical media - DVD/Flash Drive
o Embargo access to data.census.gov - requires pre-registration
o Confirmation of data's receipt- monitoring official receipt
o Public release data.census.gov and FTP - Now all data in ftp is pipe-delimited

Data Products Released are P.L. 94-171 Redistricting Tables:
o P1-Race
o P2-Race for voting age
o P3 - Hispanic and Race
o P4 Hispanic and Race voting age
o H1 Occupancy Status Housing
o P5 - Group Quarters Pop
