CENSUS ENUMERATION DISTRICT (ED)

As defined by the Bureau of the Census, an area used for data collection activities and as a tabulation area where census blocks are not present. EDs do not cross boundaries of legal or statistical area and therefore vary widely in population size. They do not generally exceed 1,600 population in areas where the census is taken by mail or 1,000 where the census is taken by conventional enumerator canvassing. (TRB)
