SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

On March 15, 2002 (67 FR 11663), the Census Bureau published a Federal Register Notice of Final Program Criteria announcing its criteria for defining urban and rural territory based on the results of Census 2000. The Census Bureau is correcting the final criteria as they apply to Guam.

The Census Bureau is providing the following correction to the original Notice.

Page 11667, Column 1, first paragraph under the “Urban Area Criteria for Census 2000” heading: “The following criteria apply to the 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, American Samoa, Guam, the Northern Mariana Islands, and the Virgin Islands of the United States” is corrected to read, “The following criteria apply to the 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, American Samoa, the Northern Mariana Islands, and the Virgin Islands of the United States. The criteria also can be applied to Guam, at the request of the Governor. Lacking such a request, all urban population in Guam, regardless of cluster size, will be designated as in “urban clusters.”

This correction is provided in accordance with an agreement between the Census Bureau and the government of Guam. All urban areas defined within Guam based on the results of Census 2000 are designated as urban clusters regardless of their total population.
