We have received a number of questions about the timetable for the
publication of the final criteria for the definition of Urbanized Areas and
Urban Clusters. We now expect to publish in the Federal Register the final
criteria before mid March, 2002, and have the announcement of the Urbanized
Areas and Urban Clusters based on these criteria and the Census 2000
population totals by late March, 2002 or early April, 2002.
As part of the GIS and Census workshop at GIS-T 2002 in Atlanta, we will be
describing the automated process to delineate the UAs and UCs based on the
final criteria. Please note that session 6.4 Census 2002 & TIGER
Modernization in the preliminary program for GIS-T 2002 has been replaced by
another topic, and the only formal discussion of the UA criteria will be at
the GIS and Census Workshop Sunday afternoon. The Census Bureau plans to
have an exhibit booth at GIS-T, so please stop by if you are not attending
the workshop (or even if you do attend the workshop).
