U.S. Census Bureau

Texas County Populations from the 2010 Redistricting Data. Redistricting data is slightly different than the "normal" data from the Census. This is due to how certain people are counted. For example, military members serving overseas are counted as residing at their home of record for redistricting purposes only. Therefore, the data that is released later may differ from the redistricting data found in this table.

FIPS Home Page. Under the Information Technology Management Reform Act (Public Law 104-106), the Secretary of Commerce approved standards and guidelines issued by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) for Federal computer systems as Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) for use government-wide. In 2008, the Secretary of Commerce withdrew FIPS 55-3 which icovered numeric codes for counties among other geographic entities. The Census Bureau, citing thirty years of common use, decided to continue to refer to many of the codes it publishes as FIPS codes with FIPS referring to Federal Information Processing Series. This web page provides access to the FIPS codes used by the Bureau.
