I sent this note to Chad and it might be of interest to others ...
One way to depict urban blocks (and thus get to an urbanized area or urban
cluster) in a shapefile with ArcView is reviewed here:
and also here:
in a different context.

I am having similar issues. I converted the files using the 2000 Tiger
conversion tool in the ArcToolbox in Arc8. When I do this, the resulting
files do not contain the UA field. I placed a call to the Census Bureau's
geography department today, and was told that they have already heard of
this happening and they suspect that it is due to the converter. They were
not able to offer any help, but told me to go back to the software vendor.
I am now trying to find someone at ESRI who can answer some questions. Has
anyone else found a way around this?

Maybe someone can tell me what I am missing here.
I have downloaded the data and converted it in Arc View 3.2a with a Tiger
Reader from the ESRI web site. But the closest thing to an "Urban Area" for
2000 is the "Transportation Planning Area."
