Census of Population and Housing, 1990 [United States]: Tiger/Census Tract Street index File (Version 1) (ICPSR 9787)
Principal Investigator(s): United States Department of Commerce. Bureau of the Census
This data collection contains FIPS codes for state, county, county subdivision, and place, along with the 1990 Census tract number for each side of the street for the urban cores of 550 counties in the United States. Street names, including prefix and/or suffix direction (north, southeast, etc.) and street type (avenue, lane, etc.) are provided, as well as the address range for that portion of the street located within a particular Census tract and the corresponding Census tract number. The FIPS county subdivision and place codes can be used to determine the correct Census tract number when streets with identical names and ranges exist in different parts of the same county. Contiguous block segments that have consecutive address ranges along a street and that have the same geographic codes (state, county, Census tract, county subdivision, and place) have been collapsed together and are represented by a single record with a single address range.

Data Collection Notes:
(1) Due to the number of files in this collection, parts have been eliminated here. For a complete list of individual part names designated by state and county, consult the ICPSR Website. (2) There are two types of records in this collection, distinguished by the first character of each record. A "0" indicates a street name/address range record that can be used to find the Census tract number and other geographic codes from a street name and address number. A "2" indicates a geographic code/name record that can be used to find the name of the state, county, county subdivision, and/or place from the FIPS code. The "0" records contain 18 variables and the "2" records contain 10 variables.
