Census 2000 Information

U.S. Census data for Elk Grove is limited because the City incorporated on July 1, 2000, but Census Day is April 1, 2000.  Therefore, the City did not exist when Census 2000 was conducted.  Consequently, the U.S. Census Bureau did not collect data based on Elk Grove’s incorporated boundaries.  The Elk Grove data on the U.S. Census Bureau web site is based on the Elk Grove Census Designated Place (CDP), not the City’s incorporated boundaries.  The U.S. Census Bureau reports data for CDPs for unincorporated communities.  However, the Elk Grove CDP only includes roughly one-third of Elk Grove’s incorporated boundaries.  The Census 2000 data provided below for the City of Elk Grove was assembled using those Census blocks and tracts that most closely approximate Elk Grove’s boundaries.
