  11. Why worry? • Questions raised by OMB Bulletin 04-03 • What happened to the Bristol VA Metropolitan Statistical Area? • Where did the Greenville-Spartanburg-Anderson, SC Combined Statistical area come from?

  14. Wild Card #1 Census EEO Geography • Different than any other geography • No areas with less than 50,000 population • Counties of 50,000 or more might not be presented separately – if they are combined with one or more smaller counties • Individual state EEO geography files can be found in CENLAB00.ZIP file found in state directories at: ftp://ftp.xwalkcenter.org/almis/states

  15. Wild Card #2 New England Geography • New England is: all states north and east of New York • Counties are defined, but generally not used • Individual states may have developed their own systems – may be best source • NCSC prototype New England Geography: • Based on content taken from http://www.census.gov/population/www/estimates/metrodef.html • Used AREATYPE 05 – Minor Civil Division • Files available on NCSC FTP server. See ftp://ftp.xwalkcenter.org/almis/nonstd/readme.txt

  16. What’s next • Still planning • Tentative resource list • GEOG and SUBGEOG sets for each OMB Bulletin • Archive of OMB change documents • RSS and e-mail notification of changes
