    Senate Judiciary staff has also created four Maptitude Layers containing more specific information about the location of group quarters throughout the state of South Carolina. Please be aware that Census group quarter populations and Senate Judiciary group quarter populations differ. The data were created under different circumstances by different agencies. Senate Judiciary Staff created the group quarters layers by contacting the appropriate state or federal agencies and private institutions, and compiling a dataset. The locations of large group quarters were verified using satellite photography where appropriate based on the information provided by these institutions. For the purpose of redistricting the Senate Judiciary is utilizing the Census information as the primary data source. The group quarters data created by the Senate Judiciary Staff is a secondary data set and should be treated as such.
