ACTION: Notice of final criteria and program implementation. AGENCY: SUMMARY: Block groups are statistical geographic divisions of a census tract, defined for the tabulation and presentation of decennial census data. Block groups also will be used to tabulate and present period estimates from the American Community Survey (ACS) 1 after 2010. Block groups provide the geographic framework within which the Bureau of the Census (Census Bureau) defines census blocks. Each block group comprises a reasonably compact and contiguous cluster of census blocks; up to nine block groups can be contained within a single census tract. This Notice announces the Census Bureau’s final criteria for the Census Block Group Program for the 2010 Decennial Census. In addition, this Notice contains a summary of comments received to proposed criteria published in the April 6, 2007 Federal Register (72 FR 17337), as well as the Census Bureau’s response to these comments. In response to comments received, the Census Bureau has modified its proposed criteria for the Census Block Group Program for the 2010 Decennial Census. Most provisions of the block 1 The ACS is conducted in the United States and in Puerto Rico. In Puerto Rico, the survey is called the Puerto Rico Community Survey. For ease of discussion, throughout this document the term ACS is used to represent both the survey that is conducted in the United States and in Puerto Rico. PO 00000 Frm 00003 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 13829 group criteria for the 2010 Census remain unchanged from those used in conjunction with the 2000 Decennial Census, except as follows. First, the same population and housing unit thresholds, a minimum of 600 people or 240 housing units and a maximum of 3,000 people or 1,200 housing units, will apply to all types of populated block groups, including block groups delineated within American Indian reservations and off-reservation trust lands, the Island Areas, and encompassing group quarters, military installations, and institutions. Second, housing unit counts may be used instead of population counts in the delineation of block groups. Third, the delineation of special land use tracts will be permitted, and encouraged, for areas with special land uses (e.g., airports, military reservations, public forests, public parks, and special places/ group quarters) with an official name. Finally, a geographic framework of tribal block groups, separate from the standard block groups defined within counties, will be defined within federally recognized American Indian reservations and/or off-reservation trust lands, subject to other population, housing, and boundary criteria contained in this document. Upon publication of the final criteria contained in this Notice, the Census Bureau will offer governments, organizations, and interested data users an opportunity to review and, if necessary, suggest updates to the boundaries and attributes of the block groups in their geographic area under the Participant Statistical Areas Program (PSAP). In addition to block groups, the PSAP also encompasses the review and update of census tracts, census designated places, and census county divisions (in selected states). DATES: This notice’s final criteria will be effective on March 14, 2008.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. History of Block Groups The Census Bureau first delineated block groups as statistical geographic divisions of census tracts for the 1970 Census, comprising contiguous combinations of census blocks for data presentation purposes. At that time, census block groups only existed in urbanized areas in which census blocks were defined. Block groups were defined without regard to political and E:\FR\FM\14MRN1.SGM 14MRN1
