Census 2000 Tabulation Entity Counts by County

The Census Bureau is providing tallies of the number of geographic entities within county and statistically equivalent entity. The geographic entities for which we are providing tallies include county subdivisions (minor civil divisions, census county divisions, unorganized territories, and census subareas), places (consolidated cities, incorporated places, and census designated places), census tracts, block groups, blocks, voting districts, state legislative districts (upper and lower chambers), traffic analysis zones, school districts, and ZIP Code ® tabulation areas (ZCTAs TM).

These geographic entity tallies are provided in a comma-delimited ASCII text file format, one file per state and statistical equivalent. The last record in each state file includes a summary total of the counts for each Census 2000 geographic entity within the state. Note that some geographic entities including places, voting districts, state legislative districts, school districts, and ZCTAs can cross county boundaries. ZCTAs can cross state boundaries. Thus summing the total number of these entities by county will result in a total higher than the number of entities within the state.
