block 2010
A census block is the smallest unit of geography used by the U.S. Census. The average inhabited census block includes 38 eligible voters, 25 voters who participated in the 2020 general election, and 9 voters who cast ballots in the typical local election.
This table includes records for each of the 11.2 million blocks defined using the 2010 Census.
Note on census blocks
For the rest of 2022, we will be providing two versions of all tables that reference census blocks: one using blocks from the 2010 census, and another using blocks from the 2020 census. Beginning in 2023, we will shift to only rely on blocks from the 2020 census.
