Group Quarters are defined as places where people live or stay in a group living arrangement that is owned or managed by an organization, such as college residence halls, residential treatment centers, skilled nursing facilities, group homes, military barracks, prisons, and worker dormitories. In this Data Gem, you will learn how to access Group Quarters population data from the 2020 Census Redistricting Data Files using data.census.gov and the 2020 Census Demographic Data Map Viewer.
