DEFINITION

What are Census Summary Levels?

A Census Summary Level is a level of geography for which the U.S. Census Bureau keeps track of data for tabulation purposes. In addition to political boundaries such as states and counties, the Census Bureau also creates smaller levels of geography so that data can be tabulated to smaller units. The smallest units are census blocks, followed by block groups and census tracts.
