This Glossary, Part B of the 1990 Census of Population and Housing Guide, is divided into four sections containing definitions and explanations of geographic area classifications, population characteristics, housing characteristics, and other technical terms associated with the census and its data products. An important additional section is the Index of Terms, an alphabetic index covering all the terms in the other sections.

A Note on Language

Census statistics date back to 1790 and reflect the growth and change of the United States. Past census reports contain some terms that today’s readers may consider obsolete and inappropriate. As part of our goal to be open and transparent with the public, we are improving access to all Census Bureau original publications and statistics, which serve as a guide to the nation's history.
