Download SABINS Boundary Files

In addition to providing SABINS data, the SABINS extraction system provides digital mapping data in the shapefile format for historical census tracts, counties, states, metropolitan statistical areas, and several other geographic levels. In order to use these data, the user must have access to a Geographic Information System (GIS) that will read shapefiles.

You may access GIS school attendance boundary files through the SABINS data finder. You can browse and select data without an account, but you must register (free) and/or login to complete your extract request. If you already have a user account for another Minnesota Population Center product (IPUMS, IPUMS-International, NAPP, NHGIS, IHIS, or ATUS-X), you may use it for SABINS.
