Census tracts are small, relatively permanent subdivisions of a county that are defined by the U. Census Bureau in conjunction with local authorities all across the country to define real neighborhoods that are bounded to contain areas with homogeneous population characteristics (including economic status, lifestyle, and living conditions).
Census tracts usually have 4,000 persons, but can range between 1,500 and 8,000 persons.
Then we named each census tract to the local colloquially recognized neighborhood name for that spot (e.g., Boston, MA (Dorchester).
If there was not a name available, we named the census tract by the largest street intersection in the census tract (e.g., Worcester, MA (Lincoln St/Plantation St) Zip codes were developed by the Postal Service for the purpose of delivering mail, but were never intended to define coherent neighborhoods.
