Description

The United States Census Bureau TIGER dataset contains the 2018 boundaries for the primary governmental divisions of the United States. In addition to the fifty states, the Census Bureau treats the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and each of the island areas (American Samoa, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, Guam, and the U.S. Virgin Islands) as the statistical equivalents of States for the purpose of data presentation. Each feature represents a state or state equivalent.

For full technical details on all TIGER 2018 products, see the TIGER technical documentation.
