Abstract:
This is an Arc/Info polygon coverage of Pierce County election precincts. It is part of the Auditor's Office redistricting package, and was created from the TRBLK (census blocks and census tracts) coverage. The data in this coverage (and TRBLK) was provided by the Puget Sound Regional Council (PSRC), which got the data from the 1990 TIGER/Line Files from the U.S. Bureau of the Census. The TIGER data is 1:24,000 scale. This coverage was registered to the Pierce County Assessor-Treasurer's tax parcel base in 10/1998. All subsequent updates use the most current Tax Parcels and Cities in Pierce County themes. The Assessor-Treasurer's tax parcel data is at the 1:1200 scale in urban areas and 1:4800 in rural areas. This feature class is unshifted data, it was derived from the tax parcel dataset that was digitized from paper maps and legal descriptions. This data is no longer being maintained and is retained for historic purposes only.
Purpose:
This coverage is part of the Auditor's office redistricting package. It is used to determine voting precincts for registered voters in Pierce County for each election period.
Supplemental_Information:
Procedures_Used This coverage was created manually from the TRACT and BLK coverages. The population for each census block and census tract was determined, and precinct boundaries were established to create a uniform number of registered voters in each precinct area. This coverage was registered to the Pierce County Assessor-Treasurer tax parcel base in 10/1998. All subsequent updates use the most current Tax Parcels and Cities in Pierce County themes. The Assessor-Treasurer tax parcel data is at the 1:1200 scale in urban areas and 1:4800 in rural areas. Revisions Revised as needed, typically in June Reviews_Applied A review of the coverage boundary locations is done each June before elections. An analysis of registered voters is done to make sure that there is a uniform number of voters in each election precinct. If there are not uniform population numbers, the precinct boundaries are revised and changed to reflect the new voter data. Related_Spatial_and_Tabular_Data_Sets This coverage was created from the BLK and TRACT coverages. PRECCOV is part of the Auditor's office redistricting package that also includes the coverages FINALCON, FINALLEG, COCOUNLEG, and CNCLMAP91. All of these coverages are located in /com.

Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Report:
Data was originally registered to the 1:24,000 scale USGS 1990 TIGER centerline data. Horizontal control was the same as the 1:24,000 scale USGS 1990 TIGER centerline data which is approximately +/- 250 feet (ground units). This data was registered to Pierce County Assessor-Treasurer tax parcel data in 10/1998. The tax parcel data is +/- 10 and was captured at 1:1200 scale in the urban areas and 1:4800 in the rural areas. Users should be aware that even though the scale of digital data may be increased to overlay large scale digital maps, the accuracy of the digital source is not improved by scale enlargement.
