NFIRS 5.0 Element: ‘Census Tract’

Definition: The census tract number is a six-digit number assigned by the U.S. Census Bureau that identifies an area of land within the United States. Not all jurisdictions have census tract numbers.

Purpose: This element provides a means to cross-reference geographic and population information that is available from the U.S. Census Bureau to incident data for comparative analysis.

Entry: Enter the census tract number for the property involved in the incident.The right two spaces are always assumed to follow a decimal point. If the incident occurs in an area where a census tract number has not been assigned, leave blank.
