NEW! 2010 Census Urbanized Area Designation (March 2012)
The Census Bureau designates a new list of Urbanized Areas (UZAs) every 10 years, following the conclusion of each decennial census, as well as makes modifications to existing UZAs. The designation of UZAs by the U.S. Census Bureua has significant implications for the metropolitan planning process.
Below are links to resources regarding the recent designation and modification of UZAs, as well as maps depicting the 2010 and 2000 Bridgeport-Stamford, CT-NY Urbanized Area as well as UZAs in the State of Connecticut.

Change In Population, 1990-2000 In Relationship to Employment, 2000: State of Connecticut (Prepared March, 2003)
The focus of this document is on change in population between 1990 and 2000 relative to employment in 2000. The narrative, two maps and table take a preliminary look at sprawl between 1990 and 2000 in the State of Connecticut. The narrative discusses the purpose, methodology and observations of the maps and tables. The two maps show the population change between 1990 and 2000 by Census Block Group. However, the primary map illustrates this population change along with town-level employment figures in 2000; the secondary map shows only the population change with the boundaries of the Census Block Groups. To support the maps, the document includes a table of town-level population and employment figures for 1990 and 2000.
