The text file created by Richard Forstall was modified by firstname.lastname@example.org to make a .csv file of decennial population data that is easier to find and use.
Spreadsheets and statistical software can read the comma-separated CSV file. The Stata .dta file can be converted to other formats using conversion software such as Stat/Transfer.
