2007 Economic Census
Counties are the primary political and administrative divisions of States.
Also recognized by the Census Bureau as county equivalents for economic census purposes are:
- Parishes in Louisiana;
- Boroughs, Census Areas, and certain Cities in Alaska
- Independent Cities (in Maryland, Missouri, Nevada and Virginia);
- The District of Columbia (since it has no primary divisions);
- Districts and Islands in American Samoa;
- Election Districts in Guam;
- Municipalities in the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands;
- Municipios in Puerto Rico and
- Islands in the U.S. Virgin Islands.
Note: Kalawao County, HI, is combined with Maui County for statistical purposes.
Counties are identified by a 3-digit ANSI County code (COUNTY), which are sequenced alphabetically within a State, with independent cities following the listing of Counties within each State.
