This Notice provides the list of urbanized areas[1] that qualified based on the results of the 2000 Census of Population and Housing for the United States, Puerto Rico, and the Island Areas.[2] The Bureau of the Census (Census Bureau) determined these urbanized areas using the urban area criteria published in the Federal Register on March 15, 2002 (67 FR 11663).[3] In addition, this Notice alerts data users to the future availability of lists of (1) urban clusters and (2) major airports evaluated for inclusion in qualifying urbanized areas and urban clusters.[4]


This Notice is effective immediately.

The Census Bureau identifies and tabulates data for the urban and rural populations and their associated areas solely for the presentation and comparison of census statistical data. The Census Bureau does not take into account or attempt to anticipate any nonstatistical uses that may be made of these areas or their associated data, nor does it attempt to meet the requirements of such nonstatistical program uses. Nonetheless, the Census Bureau recognizes that some federal and state agencies are required by law to use Census Bureau-defined urban and rural classifications for allocating program funds, setting program standards, and implementing aspects of their programs. The agencies that make such nonstatistical uses of the areas and data should be aware that the changes to the urban and rural criteria for Census 2000 might affect the implementation of their programs.

If a federal, state, local, or tribal agency voluntarily uses these urban and rural criteria in a nonstatistical program, it is that agency's responsibility to ensure that the criteria are appropriate for such use. In considering the appropriateness of such nonstatistical program uses, the Census Bureau urges each agency to consider permitting appropriate modifications of the results of implementing the urban and rural criteria specifically for the purposes of its program. When a program permits such modifications, the Census Bureau urges each agency to use descriptive terminology that clearly identifies the different criteria being applied so as to avoid confusion with the Census Bureau's official urban and rural classifications.

The Census Bureau examined the use of nonresidential land-use data (other than major airports) to better define urban areas, but it could not find a consistent national database that identifies such areas. This was documented in the final criteria published in the Federal Register on March 15, 2002 (67 FR 11663). As a result, many nonresidential areas that would be perceived as clearly part of the urban framework (for example, industrial, commercial, and other types of developed areas with employment) do not qualify for inclusion in a Census 2000 urban area. The Census Bureau is continuing research to determine if there are objective and consistent ways to address issues involving inclusion of nonresidential urban land uses in urban areas in future censuses. For this reason, the Census Bureau stresses the need for users of this urban area information for purposes other than statistical comparison of Census Bureau data to examine the applicability of the areas defined and allow for modifications for nonstatistical purposes.

Executive Order 12866

This Notice is not significant for purposes of Executive Order 12866.

Regulatory Flexibility Act

Because a Notice and opportunity for public comment are not required by 5 U.S.C. 553, or any other law, for lists of urbanized areas, this Notice is not subject to the analytical requirements of the Regulatory Flexibility Act. Thus, a Regulatory Flexibility Analysis is not required and none has been prepared (5 U.S.C. 603[a]).

Paperwork Reduction Act

This Notice does not represent a collection of information subject to the requirements of the Paperwork Reduction Act, Title 44, U.S.C., Chapter 35.

Urbanized Areas, Urban Clusters, and Major Airports

This section of the Notice provides lists of the Census 2000 urbanized areas. It also refers to the location of listings of urban clusters and major airports.

As a result of Census 2000, there are 453 urbanized areas in the United States, 11 urbanized areas in Puerto Rico, one urbanized area in Guam, and one urbanized area in the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, for a total of 466 urbanized areas. This represents a net increase of 61 urbanized areas from the 405 urbanized areas defined based on 1990 census results—396 in the United States and 9 in Puerto Rico. The increase consists of 76 entirely new urbanized areas, plus an additional 15 urbanized areas created from splitting existing areas, minus 29 areas lost through combination and one 1990 urbanized area failing to qualify.

As noted, the Census Bureau defined the Census 2000 urbanized areas using the criteria published in the Federal Register on March 15, 2002 (67 FR 11663), but in four cases—Hagatna GU; St. Charles, MD; Saipan, MP; and The Woodlands, TX—it departed from the criteria when it created a title for an urbanized area. For St. Charles and The Woodlands, an incorporated place with a population of at least 2,500 did exist within the urbanized area, but a well-known, locally identifiable census designated place with more than ten times the population of the incorporated place also existed within the urbanized area. In order to make the areas more identifiable, the Census Bureau decided to use the name of the larger census designated place in the title.

The urbanized areas defined for the first time in the Island Areas—Hagatna, GU, and Saipan, MP—were named for the designated capitals of Guam and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, respectively, to identify more clearly the most important centers within each urbanized area.

1.  An urbanized area consists of densely settled territory that contains 50,000 or more people.

Back to Citation

2.  The Island Areas are American Samoa, Guam, the Northern Mariana Islands, and the Virgin Islands of the United States.

Back to Citation

3.  An urbanized area delineated as a result of a special census conducted by the Census Bureau during this decade (an intercensal urbanized area), at the request and expense of local governments, will be qualified using these criteria and the population counts reported in that special census.

Back to Citation

4.  An urban cluster consists of densely settled territory that contains at least 2,500 people, but fewer than 50,000 people. Major airports adjoining qualifying urbanized areas and urban clusters are those airports that, according to 2000 Federal Aviation Administration statistics, had an annual enplanement of at least 10,000 people, and thus qualified as a primary airport in that year.

Back to Citation

5.  Danville, IL qualified as an urbanized area as a result of the 1980 census but failed to qualify as an urbanized area for the 1990 census, and therefore is treated as a new urbanized area.

Back to Citation

6.  Flagstaff, AZ did not qualify as an urbanized area as a result of the 1990 census but was qualified as an urbanized area in 1996 based on the results of a special census taken in 1995.
