This volume should be used for performing those regional description tasks associated with defining superdistricts and preparing demographic data required in the analysis. It discusses the selection and description of the superdistricts — often equivalent to countries — the demographic areas into which the California Corridor was divided for analysis. Since the first count census did not contain the household income data necessary for the analysis, household income was estimated from the contract rent and property value data given on the census tapes; this estimation procedure is described. Population estimates for 1985 are provided for use in the excursion cases. Then, the several procedures necessary to add geographic coordinates to the census data and otherwise prepare the STAR census data tapes for use in the noise analysis are described, as well as the procedure for mapping census data.
