Hello! I am looking for a list of Central Business Districts (CBDs) and the corresponding Census Tracts that make up the CBDs. In this Census paper, there is a link to to a dataset that appears to be what I am looking for: http://www.census.gov/geo/www/cbd.html. But unfortunately, this link appears to be dead.
Does anyone know where I can find such a list of CBDs and associated tracts on the new Census website or elsewhere? Thanks!
It looks like the CBD program was done away with in the early 1980s: https://web.archive.org/web/20120925011908/https://www.census.gov/geo/www/cbd.html
In this day of malls and sprawl and metropolitan reefs…
In this day of malls and sprawl and metropolitan reefs, it'd be interesting to apply their 40 year old definitions to see how well they hold up.
The wayback machine is a great solution for this - thanks for pointing that out!
And yes, I'm sure there will be many adjustments that need to be made to those tracts in this day...
