comparison purposes. To search current 2010 census data visit the

Census Designated Place (CDP): Census designated
places (CDPs) have been created for each decennial census as the statistical counterparts
of incorporated places. CDPs are delineated to provide census data for concentrations
of population, housing, and commercial structures that are identifiable by name
but are not within an incorporated place. CDP boundaries usually are defined in
cooperation with state, local, and tribal officials. These boundaries, which usually
coincide with visible features or the boundary of an adjacent incorporated place
or other legal entity boundary, have no legal status, nor do these places have officials
elected to serve traditional municipal functions.
Household: A household includes all the people
who occupy a housing unit as their usual place of residence.
Income of households: This includes the income
of the householder and all other individuals 15 years old and over in the household,
whether they are related to the householder or not.
Individuals for whom poverty status is determined:
Poverty status was determined for all people except institutionalized people, people
in military group quarters, people in college dormitories, and unrelated individuals
under 15 years old.
Low and Moderate Income Percent: Low and Moderate
Income Percent is calculated by U.S. Housing and Urban Development (HUD) using data
from the U.S. Census Bureau's Decennial Census, specifically for the Community Development
Block Grant Program (CDBG). LMI families are defined as those families whose income
does not exceed 80% of the county median income for the previous year or 80% of
the median income of the entire non-metropolitan area of the State of Montana, whichever
Median income: The median income divides the
income distribution into two equal groups, one having incomes above the median,
and other having incomes below the median.
Population: All people (male and female, child
and adult) living in a given geographic area.
Notes: Total Population and Total Households
are from Summary File (SF) 1, 100% data. Poverty Rates and Median Household Income
are from Summary File (SF) 3, Sample data. Low and Moderate Income Percentage was
developed by HUD using Census 2000 data.
