TIGER/Line 2000 is very similar to previous versions of the Census Bureau's geographic database. Road features, address ranges, political boundaries, and statistical boundaries are perhaps the most utilized aspects of this widely-used free data product. TIGER, TIGER documentation, and TIGER metadata are all available on the Census Bureau's website, and we'll show you where to find some of the most often needed information. TIGER 2000 structure will be discussed, and the new Zip Code Tabulation Areas (ZCTAs) will be explained.
