Major Geographic Areas and Type of American Community Survey Estimates Received

Click on Table for larger image.

Note: * When originally designed, each PUMA contained a population of about 100,000. Over time, some of these PUMAs have gained or lost population. Due to the population displacement in the greater New Orleans areas caused by Hurricane Katrina in 2005, Louisiana PUMAs 1801, 1802, and 1805 no longer meet the 65,000-population threshold for one-year estimates.

Source: U.S. Census Bureau (2008: Table 3). This tabulation is restricted to geographic areas in the United States. It was based on the population sizes of geographic areas from the July 1, 2007, Census Bureau Population Estimates and geographic boundaries as of January 1, 2007. Because of the potential for changes in population size and geographic boundaries, the actual number of areas receiving one-year, three-year, and five-year estimates may differ from the numbers in this table.
