Did you know that some Census Bureau geographies nest within other geographies? Understanding when these geographies (census blocks, ​census tracts, counties, etc.) interconnect and when they don’t can be the key to finding Census Bureau data more easily and effectively. To find data successfully is to comprehend the underlying geographical hierarchy. ​In this session, learn about the interconnections of Census Bureau geographies in order to better pinpoint your data selections. This session will pivot between explaining nesting concepts and geographies and demonstrating with data.census.gov ​and other tools how to find those geographies, and their data.
