Title: "HAZUS: Building Count by Occupancy by Census Tracts" (2005)
Description: This data set provides a count of buildings for each HAZUS specific occupancy classifications developed from the 2000 U.S. Census and Dun& Bradstreet. All data was developed at the census block level (for the United States in the fifty states, the District of Columbia, and the territories), and then aggregated at census tract level. ABSG developed this data set from the 2000 version of TIGER/Line files and first quarter of 2002 data from D&B. The dataset was generated by dividing the square footage by occupancy by Census Block by typical floor areas (square footage) for each occupancy.
