Entity and Attribute Overview:
MCDCCD00 was created from Census 2000 TIGER/Line File data and built to POLYGON topology. Attributes include COUNTY, COUSUB00, COUSUB00NUM, COUSUB00NAME, POP00, and CENTAG. The item COUSUB00 can be used to relate other Census data files to the CCD polygons. The item CENTAG was added for correct labeling and/or statistics where multiple polygons contain the same COUSUB00 number as is the case in some coastal communities where islands are depicted. A table POPMAPS provides a related analysis of Census 2000 county subdivisions for Maine. Developed by the Maine Census Consortium, Maine State Planning Office, the file includes 2000 and 1990 populations, numeric and percent population change, population density 2000 and density change. A second table MEPOPS has been developed by MEGIS. MEPOPS contains previously published population data for Maine county subdivisions from decennial census data 1950 through 1990 and the relate item COUSUB00 found in MCDCCD00. Both tables are published and available for download through the MEGIS internet Data Catalog at http://megis.maine.gov/catalog/.
