Get ready for the California redistricting rumble.
On Monday, the Census Bureau announced that it had shipped 2010 Census data to the California
Governor's Office and leadership of the state Legislature. The Census Bureau expects to make the information public Tuesday at about 12:30 p.m. West Coast time, and quite a treasure trove it is.
The Census information will include summaries of population totals, as well as data on race and voting age for multiple geographic divisions with California, including census blocks, tracts, voting districts, cities, counties and school districts. In other words, this is good stuff for those designing the state's next political boundaries.
