Zero-obs files for the LEHD-GAL datasets available

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

The zero obs datasets for the LEHD Geocoded Address List (GAL) are now available on the VirtualRDC. The Geocoded Address List (GAL) is a data set containing unique commercial and residential addresses in a state geocoded to the Census Block and latitude/longitude coordinates. It consists of the address list (GAL proper) and a crosswalk for each processed file-year. The GAL contains each unique address, identified by a GAL identifier called galid, its geocodes, a flag for each file-year in which it appears, data quality indicators, and data processing information, including the release date of the Geographic Reference File (GRF). The actual data files will be accessible by the end of the summer through the Census Research Data Centers, by following standard RDC project proposal guidelines.
