Some states did not participate in Phase 2 (the Voting District Project) of the Census 2000 Redistricting Data Program or did not submit VTD boundaries or codes. An "NA" appears in the VTD column in these states. The tallies for the number of VTDs include VTD code "ZZZZZZ"; this code identifies areas in the state where no VTDs were defined, such as bodies of water. The VTD total for Arizona includes VTDs for only eight counties; seven counties in Arizona did not submit VTDs to the Census Bureau.
Some states did not participate in Phase 2 (the Voting District Project) of the Census 2000 Redistricting Data Program or did not submit state legislative district (SLD) boundaries or codes. An "NA" appears in the SLDU or SLDL columns in these states. The tallies for the number of SLDs include SLD code "ZZZ"; this code identifies areas in the state where no SLDs were defined, such as bodies of water. Nebraska has a "0" total for SLDLs because it has a unicameral legislature.
In Hawaii, the elementary and secondary school district counts include high school service areas (recorded as secondary school districts) and groupings of these areas into administrative districts (recorded as elementary school districts). Community school districts are recorded as elementary school districts in New York city. In Massachusetts, South Carolina, and Tennessee, some unified school districts also serve as secondary school districts in areas where there are elementary school districts. In these situations the Census Bureau could not use the same school district code to identify school districts serving different grade ranges and assigned two separate codes; a unified school district code and a separate "false" secondary school district code. The school district counts in Massachusetts, South Carolina, and Tennessee include these false school district codes.
Some states did not participate in the Census 2000 TAZ program. An "NA" appears in the TAZ column in these states. The tallies for the number of TAZs include TAZ code "ZZZZZZ"; this code identifies areas in the state where no TAZs were defined. Some states did not submit TAZ boundaries or codes for all counties.
ZCTAs can cross state boundaries. Thus, summing the total number of 3-digit or 5-digit ZCTAs by state will result in a total higher than the number of ZCTAs within the United States or the United States and Puerto Rico. The total counts in this table reflect the actual number of ZCTAs.
