Abstract:
Census bureau statistical units.  Most commonly used statistical unit. This version, released January 2004 contains a fix, replacing tract 172 which was omitted from previous versions.

These data are available in the native ArcINFO Coverage or converted by PASDA staff to Shape-File format.
