Service Planning Areas (SPA) – 2002

Service Planning Areas (SPAs) are used by a number of County departments (Public Health, Health Services and Mental Health) to plan and manage service delivery across the County.  SPAs are aggregated from Census Tracts in order to connect them to demographic information.

The SPAs in this dataset are based upon 2000 Census Tracts and were created in 2002.
