The land area of Van Buren County, IA was 485 in 2018.
Land area is a measurement providing the size, in square miles, of the land portions of geographic entities for which the Census Bureau tabulates and disseminates data. Area is calculated from the specific boundary recorded for each entity in the Census Bureau's geographic database. Land area is based on current information in the TIGER® data base, calculated for use with Census 2010.
Water Area figures include inland, coastal, Great Lakes, and territorial sea water. Inland water consists of any lake, reservoir, pond, or similar body of water that is recorded in the Census Bureau's geographic database. It also includes any river, creek, canal, stream, or similar feature that is recorded in that database as a two- dimensional feature (rather than as a single line). The portions of the oceans and related large embayments (such as Chesapeake Bay and Puget Sound), the Gulf of Mexico, and the Caribbean Sea that belong to the United States and its territories are classified as coastal and territorial waters; the Great Lakes are treated as a separate water entity. Rivers and bays that empty into these bodies of water are treated as inland water from the point beyond which they are narrower than 1 nautical mile across. Identification of land and inland, coastal, territorial, and Great Lakes waters is for data presentation purposes only and does not necessarily reflect their legal definitions.

This dataset contains aggregate Medicaid payments, and counts for eligible recipients and recipients served by month and county in Iowa, starting with month ending 1/31/2011. Eligibility groups are a category of people who meet certain common eligibility requirements. Some Medicaid eligibility groups cover additional services, such as nursing facility care and care received in the home. Others have higher income and resource limits, charge a premium, only pay the Medicare premium or cover only expenses also paid by Medicare, or require the recipient to pay a specific dollar amount of their medical expenses. Eligible Medicaid recipients may be considered medically needy if their medical costs are so high that they use up most of their income. Those considered medically needy are responsible for paying some of their medical expenses. This is called meeting a spend down. Then Medicaid would start to pay for the rest. Think of the spend down like a deductible that people pay as part of a private insurance plan.

This dataset contains is a list of Iowa features contained in the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS). The GNIS is the Federal standard for geographic nomenclature. The U.S. Geological Survey developed the GNIS for the U.S. Board on Geographic Names, a Federal inter-agency body chartered by public law to maintain uniform feature name usage throughout the Government and to promulgate standard names to the public. The GNIS is the official repository of domestic geographic names data; the official vehicle for geographic names use by all departments of the Federal Government; and the source for applying geographic names to Federal electronic and printed products of all types. See http://geonames.usgs.gov for additional information. The Geographic Names Information System contains information about physical and cultural geographic features of all types, current and historical, but not including roads and highways. The database assigns a unique, permanent feature identifier, the Feature ID, as a standard Federal key for accessing, integrating, or reconciling feature data from multiple data sets. The GNIS collects data from a broad program of partnerships with Federal, State, and local government agencies and other authorized contributors.

Antidegradation refers to federal and state regulations designed to maintain existing uses of surface waters and to protect high quality waters from unnecessary pollution. An Outstanding Iowa Water (OIW) is defined as the following: "A surface water that IDNR has classified as an outstanding state resource water in the water quality standards." An OIW receives Tier 2 ½ protection. Tier 2 ½ Review is defined as follows: "Policies and procedures that prohibit any lowering of water quality in unique waters as identified in the water quality standards unless the lowering is temporary and limited, results from expansion of existing sources, or serves to maintain or enhance the value, quality, or use of the OIW, as determined by the Director of IDNR on a case-by-case basis."

Combined dataset of all wells with uniform attributes from detailed individual well databases. This dataset is intended to serve as a metadata-level well database. Large overlaps are known to exist among databases; however, all are preserved as found in order to preserve program-specific information. For example a well may derive geologic data from the Geologic Sampling Points database, public water supply data from the SDWIS Wells database and Water Allocation information from the Water Use (WACOP) database. Each of these will be represented by a record within this dataset.

The Major Water Sources list was created by IDNR to address concerns that new confinements would be constructed within view of "floatable/canoeable" rivers. The definition of major water source in Iowa Administrative Code - Natural Resource Commission - Chapter 65 is: "a water source that is a lake, reservoir, river or stream located within the territorial limits of the state, or any marginal river area adjacent to the state, if the water source is capable of supporting a floating vessel capable of carrying one or more persons during a total of a six month period in one out of ten years, excluding periods of flooding." The list was created by getting the counties to identify "canoeable" streams and with additional input from DNR staff.

This dataset contains commonly used codes for counties and polygons representing boundaries for counties of the State of Iowa. Boundaries were developed from a set of 99 individual coverages of the Public Land Survey System (PLSS) for each county in the state. The PLSS coverages were digitized from paper copies of 7.5' topographic quadrangle maps. River boundaries were also digitized from 7.5' maps.
