Native_Data_Set_Environment:
Microsoft Windows XP Version 5.1 (Build 2600) Service Pack 3; ESRI ArcCatalog 9.3.1.3500

Data_Quality_Information:
Logical_Consistency_Report:
The shapefile is converted to SDC (Smart Data Compression) format using either tools in ArcGIS or ESRI SDC Data Development Kit Professional 2 (DDKP2). The SDC data set is then imported into a file geodatabase to verify and validate the geometry.
Completeness_Report:
After processing, the data set is checked for drawing display and number of records and file sizes compared with source materials.
Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Report:
Horizontal positional accuracy is dependent on geographic area. In most areas, accuracy is between 5 and 25 meters (16 and 82 feet). In some areas, accuracy is off by up to several tens of meters (100 feet or more). In the poorest areas, accuracy is off by up to 100 meters (328 feet).

Process_Step:
Process_Description:
The following steps were performed by ESRI: Extracted the block group data set from Tele Atlas MultiNet Administrative Areas v. 2010.03. Clipped the coastline with the Tele Atlas MultiNet North America water data set. Removed the U.S. Virgin Islands. Added field FIPS and calculated its values from the MultiNet field CODE. Attached and formatted the fields from 2009 Data Update U.S. Census Block Groups. Replaced field POP2009 with POP2010 and field POP09_SQMI with POP10_SQMI. Put "-99" values into all number type fields (except SQMI) for records where there were no matches. Calculated new values for fields POP00_SQMI, POP10_SQMI, and SQMI from the MultiNet field FEATAREA. Converted the data set to SDC. Created ArcGIS® layer file (.lyr), projection file (.prj), and spatial indices.

The polygons represent the U.S. Census block groups within the United States. A block group is a combination of census blocks that is a subdivision of a census tract. A block group consists of all blocks whose numbers begin with the same digit in a given census tract. The block group is the lowest level of geography for which the Census Bureau has tabulated sample data in the 2000 census.
