Land Area

Water Area

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.

Seizure Opioids seized as a result of undercover buys, search warrants, traffic stops and other investigative encounters. An incident is a Pennsylvania State Police (PSP) recorded violation of the Controlled Substance Act and an entry into the PSP Statistical Narcotics System. By regulation, entry is made by the PSP as stated in PSP Administrative Regulation 9-6: When violations of The Controlled Substance, Drug, Device and Cosmetic Act are reported, the required statistical information concerning the incident shall be entered into the Statistical Narcotic Reporting System (SNRS). Incidents may include undercover buys, search warrants, traffic stops and other investigative encounters So, an “incident” is not based on any arrest, but on a reported violation, though it often can include arrests. The incidents that are selected and forwarded to the portal are those that include a record of one or more seizures of the opioid drugs. In turn, a subset of those selected incidents also contains a record of one or more arrests. This is PSP data only, it would not include any Federal case/incident data.
