A census block is the smallest entity for which the Census Bureau collects and tabulates census information. There are about 11 million census blocks in the United States. In cities, a census block is typically equivalent to a city block bounded by streets on all sides. In rural areas, however, a census block may be larger and bounded by streets, streams, railroad tracks, city limits, or county boundaries.
