A Each county and statistically equivalent entity is assigned a three-digit 
Federal Information Processing Standards code that is unique within state. 
These codes are assigned in alphabetical order of county or county equivalent 
within state, except for the independent cities, which are assigned
codes higher than and following the listing of counties.

note concerning data scale:

Scale is an important factor in data usage. Certain scale datasets are not
suitable for some project, analysis, or modelling purposes. Please be sure
you are using the best available data.

1:24000 scale datasets are recommended for projects that are at the county
level. 1:24000 data should NOT be used for high accuracy base mapping such
as property parcel boundaries.

1:100000 scale datasets are recommended for projects that are at the
multi-county or regional level.

1:250000 scale datasets are recommended for projects that are at the
regional or state level or larger.

Vector datasets with no defined scale or accuracy should be considered
suspect. Make sure you are familiar with your data before using it for
projects or analyses. Every effort has been made to supply the user with
data documentation. For additional information, see the References section
and the Data Source Contact section of this documentation. For more
information regarding scale and accuracy, see our web pages at:

U.S. Census Bureau


Data was originally released by US Census Bureau in 2000. Data was downloaded by 
GeoPlan in shapefile format from ESRI 
When received, data was in Geographic projection, Datum: NAD83, Spheroid: GRS1980, Units: Decimal 
degrees.  The data was then projected to FGDL Albers HPGN 
(See "Map Projection Parameters" below).
