SOCIAL FACT S B Y C E N S U S TRACTS 



The Research Division of THE UNITED COMMDNITT SERVICES OF METROPOLITAN BOSTON presents herewith, under the general 
title of "SOCIAL FACTS BT CENSUS TRACTS", selected Items from the 1950 U. S. Census of Population and Housing for 
the tracted area of Metropolitan Boston, This area comprises 83 cities and towns, divided into a total of I465 
tracts. The three Tables published by the D. S, Bureau of the Census tabulate 251 items for each tract. From 
these, 55 Items have been selected by the U. C. S. Committee on Census Data as of major importance for our studies. 
Figures for other items for specific tracts can be obtained from the Boston Regional Office of the U. S. Departoent 
of Conmierce, UO Broad Street, Boston; HUbbard 2-6200. The price of the complete Metropolitan document is 60 cents. 

A Census Tract is a sub-division of a municipality (or in some cases an entire town) delineated for statistical 
purposes by the U. S. Bureau of the Census through cooperation with a local committee - In this case, the U. C. S, 
Census Data Committee. Tract areas were established with a view to approximate uniformity In population (usually 
3,000 to 6,000); with seme consideration for homogeneity In economic and housing characteristics, and with due 
regard for natural features. 

Any Red Feather Agency or other organisation interested in analysis of a given neighborhood comprising one or more 
tracts can compile for comparison with these data specific data on any one or more of a number of subjects, such as 
births, cases attended try visiting nurse, children attending summer camps, juvenile delinquency, memberships In 
various kinds of organizations, persons participating in specific group and recreational and educational activities, 
public relief cases, etc. Street Indexes, (House Numbers by Census Tracts) are available for the cities and towns 
in the U. C. S. area, and can be obtained through the U. C. S. Research Division. Any list of addresses can be dis- 
tributed among Census Tracts by the use of these Street Indexes. 

Social Agencies have made use of Census Tract data in the following ways: 

a. To sample coverage by geographic location of the services of each agency. 

b. To relate agency service to total and district populations. (For example, agencies for the aged 

can see extent of their services in areas of high percentage of aged, provided that they have 
1950 census data. ) 

c. To relate agency services to total community services. 

d. To enable Functional Councils and communHy planning groups to perceive areas in need of augumented services. 

e. To aid the integration of social planning, fund raising, and allocations. 

f. To facilitate answers to schools, churches, organizations and individuals for sociological and demographic 

data. (Necessary tools are Census Tract data, plus community data and annual facts from local Health 
Council and local Real Property Inventory. ) 

g. To permit evaluation of trends in service needs and problems for annual tabulation of comparable data - thus 

resulting in sounder social planning. 



CENSUS IRACT HAPS OF MUNICIPALITIES IN METROPOLITAN BOSTCTl AREA 

A special map has been prepared of each nnmiclpality in the metropolitan Boston tracted area which contains two or 
more tracts. Ttie Massachusetts Geodetic Survey maps from which these were developed are all designed for publica- 
tion in 11 X 8J" sheet form. They vary, therefore, in scale and in north point. Ihere are li2 single-tract 
monlcipalitles for which no special maps are necessary. 

Maps are available for the following imailcipallties : 



Arlington 

Belmont 

Beverly

The tract data and maps In this series of studies may be used in any combination of municipalities for Area studies 
of any section of metropolitan Boston. Comparisons of one part of a given municipality with another part of either 
the same or another municipality can also easily be made. Moreover, the selected items give the basic data from 
which special social or other data can be developed and correlated, 

KEY TO READDJO OF MAPS 



Scale is given In each case In thousands of feet. North point is shown on all maps. 
Dashed lines indicate artificial municipal boundaries. 

Solid lines Indicate streets forming tract boundaries. Names of streets are letterd parallel to streets 
wherever possible. NOTE - In a few cases solid lines denote tract boundaries formed by park, 
ceaBtary or institutional property lines, and are bo identified. 
Double lines indicate waterways or shore lines. 
Dotted lines indicate major street extensions for map clarification, or connecting links between two 

tract bounding sections of the same street. 
CroBB-hatched solid lines Indicate railroads where they are tract boundaries. Railroad extensions for 

map clarification are shown by cross-hatched dash lines . 
Blocks indicate county and tract number within county. (BC-Bristol; MC-Uiddlesex; NC-Norfolk; 

PC-Plymouth; SC-Suff oik. ) Boston tracts are numbered within A-Z letters. 
Capital words indicate adjacent municipalities.
