Description: This data set is a subset of the CENSUS Places (which is close to Incorporated Places plus CDPs) added to a subset of the UA/UC CENSUS data. PLaces were reduced by selecting any Place more than population 20,000. A subset of the UA/UC were selected as adjacent to Places > population 50,000 (a FURTHER subset of "Places greater than population 20,000" subset). The UA/UC selection was further reduced to include only UA and not selected urbanized Clusters. The resulting two subsets were unioned together to create this data layer.
