TIGER/Line Shapefile, 2012, econ state, Nevada, Economic Census Place State-based Shapefile

Metadata Updated: November 10, 2020

The TIGER/Line shapefiles and related database files (.dbf) are an extract of selected geographic and cartographic information from the U.S. Census Bureau's Master Address File / Topologically Integrated Geographic Encoding and Referencing (MAF/TIGER) Database (MTDB). The MTDB represents a seamless national file with no overlaps or gaps between parts, however, each TIGER/Line shapefile is designed to stand alone as an independent data set, or they can be combined to cover the entire nation.

Economic places used to tabulate Economic Census data vary from places used to tabulate data from the decennial census, the American Community Survey and other demographic surveys. In addition to incorporated places and census designated places (CDPs), economic places include, minor civil divisions (MCDs) in the twelve strong MCD states, and balances of MCDs or counties. An incorporated place, CDP, MCD, or balance of MCD qualifies as an economic place if it contains 2,500 or more people according to the 2010 Decennial Census, or 2,500 or more jobs according to data from the 2006-2010 5-year ACS period estimates, or is a new or significantly revised place since the 2010 Census and has an estimated population of 2,500 or greater.

The Economic Census place boundaries are as of January 1, 2012.
