Description: The U.S. Census Bureau defines and delineates the geographic boundaries for urban areas based on residential population after each decennial Census. Census-defined urban areas are used to summarize and report data collected by most Federal agencies. The Census definition of urban area includes urbanized areas of 50,000 or more population and urban clusters of at least 2,500 and less than 50,000 population. The Census Bureau uses the term "urban area" to refer to both urbanized areas and urban clusters collectively. This represents the most commonly used definition for urban areas and is based on a consistent methodology across all States.Beginning with the 2000 decennial Census, the Census Bureau has used a geographic information system (GIS) methodology to identify and construct the boundaries for urban areas based on aggregations of Census Blocks. Each urban area is built outward from a core of Census Blocks that meet an initial population density threshold; new blocks are added until the population density falls below a specified threshold, or until the urban area bumps against an adjacent urban area.Census defined urban area boundaries may not coincide with the jurisdictional boundaries of incorporated cities or towns, counties, or even States. Parts of a particular urban area (e.g., Washington, D.C. or Philadelphia, Pennsylvania) can exist in two or more States.
