Census Blocks Definition
Census blocks are statistical areas updated every ten years by computers. Computers analyze naturally occurring boundaries, like streams; manmade boundaries like roads or railroad tracks, and humanistic boundaries like school districts and county limits. Each time the boundaries connect to make a polygon, a census block is created. Census block creation is not dependent on population.
