Government Documents: Census Geography

About Census Geography

An essential component in finding Census information is determining the size of the area you wish to look at. The Census Bureau breaks the United States into smaller and smaller geographic entities for the analysis and presentation of census data. The size of a geographic area will determine how much information is available. In general, the larger the geographic area, the more information you will find on that area.
