3. Scroll down to the table entitled “Geography Results.” Under the column “Geography Name,” look in the sixth row for your census tract number, followed by the county and state.
4. Click here to access the “Census Tract to Tier for Chicago” document. The census tracts are sorted in numeric order; the number in the “short tract” column corresponds to the census tract number you obtained on the U.S. census website.
