About New York City Neighborhoods Data

In this report, the New York City neighborhoods correspond to the Public Use Microdata Areas (PUMAs) defined by the U.S. Census Bureau. PUMAs are groups of census tracts containing at least 100,000 people. In New York City, the PUMAs approximate the city Community Districts (see http://www1.nyc.gov/assets/planning/download/pdf/data-maps/nyc-population/census2010/puma_cd_map.pdf).
