Folks, Can anybody explain to me whether it is possible to get a shapefile
of a county based on 2000 census racial groupings, household by type,
population based on sex and age. l work with the Kent County MPO in Delaware
and our staff is trying to put together a map of our jurisdiction which
basically show the afore-mentioned categories. We are finding it difficult
to make a head way. Any suggestion will be very helpful.

Secondly, Nanda l am trying to get the guidelines on how to determine UA but
the url . does not
work. Any idea on how to go about this?
