2010 Amended Population
(Prisoner Adjustment)

Part XX of Chapter 57 of the Laws of 2010 directed the Task Force to adjust the Census for state and local redistricting purposes by removing Federal and State prisoners from where they were incarcerated on April 1, 2010. State prisoners were re-assigned to their residence of record prior to incarceration. Federal prisoners were subtracted from the state total and are not re-assigned. In accordance with this law, the Task Force will use these adjusted data in the creation of new State Senate and State Assembly districts.

Do NOT use the 2010 Amended Population file for Congressional redistricting. Use the 2010 unadjusted Census data files.
