Data Tables for 2000 and 2010 Decennial Census

We extracted data from the 2000 and 2010 Decennial Census Summary File 1 tables for Tennessee counties and incorporated places. The QuickStat “crosswalk” table at the bottom of this page shows which fields from the 2020 Census Redistricting release corresponds to data published in prior decades.

The tables include most variables from the SDC QuickStat format such as total population, population by race/ethnicity, housing units and population in group quarters.
