Layer: Census 2020 - Block Groups (ID: 12)

Name: Census 2020 - Block Groups

Display Field: GR_FIPSSTCO

Type: Feature Layer

Geometry Type: esriGeometryPolygon

Description: <DIV STYLE="text-align:Left;"><DIV><DIV><P><SPAN>This GIS layer contains the geographical boundaries of the 2020 census block groups for Loudoun County, Virginia. The 2020 Census block group boundaries are used for Census Bureau statistical data tabulation purposes, including the 2020 Decennial Census and American Community Surveys. Census block groups are part of the sub-county census geography hierarchy of tracts, block groups, and blocks. The three census geographies nest to each other, forming a hierarchy of census tract, followed by block groups, and then blocks, with blocks being the smallest. A census block group is a cluster of census blocks within the same census tract that have the same first digit of their four-digit census block numbers within a census tract. For example, block group 3 within census tract 610700 is a cluster of all the blocks numbered from 3000 to 3999 in that census tract. Block groups are uniquely numbered within census tracts, with the block group's valid range being 0 to 9. Block Groups are designed to be relatively homogeneous units with respect to population characteristics, economic status, and living conditions, census tracts and generally contain between 600 and 3,000 people or 240 and 1,200 housing units. This 2010 Census block group GIS layer's boundaries are based on the U.S. Census Bureau Census 2020 TIGER/Line files. The boundaries are an extract of aerial photography and cartographic information, such as roads and streams, from the Loudoun County GIS system. Census block groups are bounded on all sides by visible features, such as roads, streams, lakes, power lines, and railroad tracks, and/or by non-visible boundaries such as town and county boundaries, and short line-of-sight extensions of streets and roads.</SPAN></P></DIV></DIV></DIV>
