SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Census Bureau is planning one national 
webinar on November 18, 2021, with federally and state recognized 
tribes, which will provide a forum for tribes to review 2020 Census 
Data Product Planning Crosswalk (Crosswalk) and the proposed 2020 
Census data products and view the Census Bureau's demonstration of the 
features and information in the Crosswalk to provide input on these 
products. The Crosswalk includes information on the recently released 
2020 Census Redistricting Data (Pub. L. 94-171) Summary File tables and 
proposed data tables for the 2020 Census Demographic Profile, 
Demographic and Housing Characteristics File (DHC) and Detailed 
Demographic and Housing Characteristics File (Detailed DHC).
    The layout of the Crosswalk includes a proposed list of tables for 
these 2020 Census data products compared to the published list of 
tables from the 2010 Census. The proposed lowest levels of geography, 
proposed table shells, and the content changes from the 2010 Census are 
also included. The Crosswalk will provide tribes and tribal data users 
the opportunity to view the list of proposed Detailed DHC tables and 
table shells for the first time.
    In accordance with Executive Order 13175, Consultation and 
Coordination with Indian Tribal Governments, issued November 6, 2000, 
the Census Bureau has adhered to its tribal consultation policy by 
seeking the input of tribal governments in the planning and 
implementation of the 2020 Census with the goal of ensuring the most 
accurate counts and data for the American Indian and Alaska Native 
population. In that regard, the Census Bureau is seeking comments on 
the data products included in the Demographic Profile, the DHC and the 
Detailed DHC.

    This product will provide selected demographic and housing 
characteristics about local communities.
     Subjects: 5-year age groups, sex, race, Hispanic or Latino 
origin, household type, relationship to householder, group quarters 
population, housing occupancy, and housing tenure.
     Lowest level of geography: Places and minor civil 
divisions (MCDs).

Demographic and Housing Characteristics File (DHC)

     Subjects: Age, sex, race, Hispanic or Latino origin, 
household type, family type, relationship to householder, some subjects

groups, and American Indian and Alaska Native tribes and villages. 
These types of statistics were previously included in the 2010 Census 
Summary File 2 (SF2) and the 2010 American Indian and Alaska Native 
Summary File (AIANSF). In addition, the Detailed DHC will include a few 
tables from the 2010 Summary File 1 (SF1) that are not included in the 
DHC.
     Subjects: Detailed racial and ethnic groups, American 
Indian and Alaska Native tribes and villages, and complex person and

included in DHC.

     Lowest level of geography: To be determined.
     Date: To be determined.
    Information about the content of these data products was released 
on September 16, 2021. Tribes will have four weeks after consultation 
to analyze the Crosswalk and proposed data tables and lowest levels of 
geography to provide input.
