2010 Census Tract Change – Tract 1370.00 reinstated

I wanted to pass along to folks that the Census Bureau has agreed to fix at least one error that we have identified in the 2010 Census Tract Boundary file – specifically the accidental  merging of 2 tract from the 2000 TIGER file (tracts 1370.00 & 8002.01) into a single tract (8002.04) in 2010.  This meant the tract boundary didn’t follow the boundary of LA City, which would create problems for historic comparison, as well as jurisdictional reporting.

If you are using the Census Data, please be ready to download the data when it becomes available.

From Tim McMonagle

‘Geography Division and all the other divisions involved have agreed that this situation warrants correcting.  I have restored Census Tract 137000.  This tract was unchanged in your PSAP submission.  CT 800204 no longer extends north of Hwy 101 and the boundary follows the city boundary.  Keep in mind this change will not show up in the next release of the next public TIGER/Line files.’

Click here to see a pdf document showing the error. On the map – follow the blue lines (2010 boundaries) – you will see the “isthmus” that connects the northern portion of the white area (LA City) with the southern green portion (Calabasas).
