| valign="middle" bgcolor="#ffff99" | An '''Enumeration District (ED)''' is a sub-division of a county--the part of a neighborhood which one census taker was assigned to survey. Even small counties had several EDs. The 1930 census has an identifying number for each county, and for each ED. ''For example, Pima County, Arizona&nbsp;''has an identifying number of ''10'', so ''ED 69'' in ''Pima County'' is ''ED 10-69''.
