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. Demographic Profile 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). Access: data.census.gov. Date: Tentatively 2022. Demographic and Housing Characteristics File (DHC) The DHC will include some of the demographic and housing tables previously included in the 2010 Census Summary File 1 (SF1).

Detailed Demographic and Housing Characteristics (Detailed DHC) The Detailed DHC will provide population counts, as well as demographic and housing statistics for detailed racial and ethnic 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.
