What are census tracts?

Read time: 6 minutes

The Census Bureau defines census tracts for each state. Census tracts are small areas with populations of about 4,000 individuals. In Connecticut, some census tracts cover an entire town, while some towns have many census tracts. Census tracts do not overlap, so each address in the state is only in one census tract.

Connecticut's Social Equity Council has approved census tracts for equity license applicants.
