CENSUS GEOGRAPHY Understanding the geographic components of the census is crucial when we are using census data. Since many of our planning and programming decisions are based on political or legal definitions of a region or area, we need to be aware of the geography by which census data is reported. For example one can estimate population denominators for city-based data (a political area) using the census but in order to examine the city by smaller geographic areas statistical area data must be examined (e.g., block, census tracts, etc.). Political and statistical areas are not subsets of each other. Although a large city may be composed of multiple census tracts, tracts near the city borders would overlap those borders. Special algorithms must be developed when attempting to combine data from political and statistical areas. One area of geography not considered census geography are postal codes or zip codes. The Census Bureau does report data in STF3 by zip code but does not collect data by this geographic level. In addition zip code level data is reported at least a couple of years post release of other censes data. Following is a description of the political and the statistical areas as defined by the Census Bureau.

================UNFINISHED BUSINESS================= Last week, I asked why Summary File 1 would answer the question, "How many Koreans live in Anchorage?" but not "How many Russians live in Anchorage?" The answer is that Summary File 1 contains race data and not ancestry data. As I explained back in Week 3, Korean is a subcategory of the "Asian" race category. Only the race categories of American Indian and Alaska Native; Asian; and Native Hawaiian and Other Pacific Islander are subdivided. Hispanic origin is subdivided into Mexican, Puerto Rican, Cuban and Other Hispanic. As we know from Week 3, Hispanic is not a race, but an ethnic group. Descent from Russia, or from any other country or group I didn't name back in Week 3 is considered by the Census Bureau to be an ancestry group and not a race nor an ethnic group. Ancestry is a sample data question and the first time we'll see it reported will be in Summary File 3, due out June to September *2002* =============NEW BUSINESS: CENSUS GEOGRAPHY============== Last week, I asked you to look at the release schedule available at [].

Travel to the United States

The Regions of the United States New England The Mid-Atlantic The South The Midwest ... The West Americans often speak of their country as one of several large regions. These regions are cultural units rather than governmental units formed by history and geography and shaped by the economics, literature and folkways that all the parts of a region share. What makes one region different from another? A region's multicultural heritage as well as distinct demographic characteristics like age and occupation also make regions different and special. Within several regions, language is used differently and there are strong dialects. There are also differences in outlook and attitude based on geography. E-Texts Megalopolis The Bypassed East New England

New England has played a dominant role in American history. Until well into the 19th century, New England was the country's cultural and economic center. The earliest European settlers of New England were English Protestants who came in search of religious liberty. They gave the region its distinctive political format town meetings (an outgrowth of meetings held by church elders) in which citizens gathered to discuss issues of the day. Town meetings still function in many New England communities today and have been revived as a form of dialogue in the national political arena. New England is also important for the cultural contribution it has made to the nation. The critic Van Wyck Brooks called the creation of a distinctive American literature, in the first half of the 19th century, "the flowering of New England." Education is another of the region's strongest legacies. The cluster of top-ranking universities and colleges in

Excerpted from Compton's Interactive Encyclopedia
T he last American frontier, Alaska is the largest of the states in size and the second smallest in population. Nearly everything about this 49th state is big. Its Mount McKinley is higher than any other peak in North America. Its Yukon River is one of the longest navigable waterways in the world. Huge animals still thrive in its open spaces Kodiak, grizzly, black, and polar bears; moose, caribou, musk-oxen, wolves; otter, walrus, seals, humpback and killer whales. A laska is a land of spectacular contrasts smoking volcanoes and frozen tundra, hot springs and ice floes, creeping glaciers and virgin forests. This vast, raw, and rugged land thrusts a chain of volcanic islands more than a thousand miles southwest into the Bering Sea. Reaching beyond the international date line, the land area originally spanned four time zones. It juts northward far into the Arctic Circle, and to the south its Panhandle extends for miles between the Pacific Ocean and the Canadian Rockies. T he Stars and Stripes have flown over Alaska since March 30, 1867, when the vast land was purchased from Russia for 7.2 million dollars. In 1959 Alaska became the first new state since New Mexico and Arizona had achieved statehood in 1912, which was also the year Alaska was incorporated as a territory the first step toward statehood.

    The Pacific Coast

    The British Columbia coast is indented by coves and protected from storms by Vancouver Island. It has the most even, comfortable climate of any Canadian region. Vancouver Island's west coast is rained on frequently as a result of the coastal layout, which gives it a temperate rain forest climate. Because of this, the island's west coast has the oldest and tallest trees in Canada: Douglas firs 90 meters high and Western Red Cedars 1,300 years old. The Cordillera
    From British Columbia to the Alberta border the land is rugged, agressively styled with mountains and plateaus. Here the Rocky Mountains, the Coastal Mountains and other ranges run north to south. Canada's highest peaks are in the St. Elias Mountains, an extension of the Cordillera that reaches north into the Yukon and Alaska. The British Columbia interior is topographically convoluted, it varies from alpine snowfields to massive valleys where hot and dry conditions are typical.

    Borough governments
    Alaska has 16 boroughs (including unified municipalities, created when when a borough and all cities located within it unite in a single unit of government, as has happened in Anchorage, Juneau, and Sitka), which act much like counties in other states. There are two classes of boroughs, both of which have mandatory powers of education, land use planning, and tax assessment and collection. Both classes have separately elected borough assemblies and school boards. The major difference between the first and second-class boroughs is in how they may acquire other powers. Additionally, there are 11 census areas in the state which have no borough government due to sparse population.
    • Aleutians East Borough
    • Municipality of Anchorage . The Municipality of Anchorage is a unified home rule municipality created in 1975 through the unification of the governments of the City of Anchorage and the Greater Anchorage Area Borough, making Anchorage one of the largest municipalities in the nation, encompassing nearly 1,955 square miles from Eklutna in the north to Girdwood and Portage in the south. As a unified government, the Municipality of Anchorage is responsible for services provided in other areas by both a city and a borough (or, in other states, by a city and a county).

    About Alaska (continued) Geography Communities Population Organization Governments Corporations Economy
    Regional Governments
    Alaska's large physical size, small population, and uneven distribution of population together rise an interesting geographic problem: How to efficiently provide people with goods and services. Alaska laws and the state constitution allow for several types of local government. In 1997, about one-third of Alaska was made up of 16 organized boroughs, units of local government that are similar to the counties found in many other states. The remaining two-thirds of the state , made up of large areas of sparsely populated land, is considered a single "Unorganized borough" It is subdivided into Regional Educational Attendance Areas (REAA's) that administer schools.
    Alaska boroughs and REAA's are shown on this map, as are three Unified Home Rule Municipalities, organized boroughs that include all cities within them as a single unit of local government. The Alaska Constitution allows for the formation of first class cities, In 1997 there were 21 first class and 114 second class cities.
    Traditionally governing bodies often coexist with these governments. There are more than 200 federally recognized tribal governments in Alaska. All but five of them are associated with particular villages.

These books, based on observations Garreau made while traveling throughout North America as a journalist, analyze the social and political forces Garreau believes are transforming the geography of contemporary American communities. His ideas have found a ready audience in both academic and nonacademic settings. Both books are fixtures in college classes in anthropology, geography, demography, and urban planning. In addition to writing for the Washington Post , Garreau is senior fellow at the School of Public Policy at George Mason University. Innovation In his first book, The Nine Nations of North America
