Other_Citation_Details:
Census block boundaries spatially corrected by Fairbanks North Star Borough to match census paper references to base map.

Data_Quality_Information:
Completeness_Report:
Census block boundaries acquired from Census Bureau in both digital and paper form. Digital boundaries were not consistly aligned with geographic references (primarily roads) as depicted on the paper maps. FNSB realigned digital boundaries to be consistently aligned with Borough base map.
