US Census Data Center
SMPDD is listed as one of three US Census Bureau State Data Centers for Mississippi. Census related demographic data are available by request. The mission of the State Data Center program is to provide efficient access to U.S. Census Bureau data and data products, provide training and technical assistance to data users, and provide a mechanism for feedback to the Census Bureau on data usability, state and local government data needs, and operational issues.
SMPDD provides redistricting services and map production for several cities and counties within its jurisdiction. Redistricting is the changing of political boundaries in response to the decennial census results. This takes place by law to maintain a geographic form of proportional representation.
