I think a lot of people are doing this wrong. I was told wrong by an appraiser. The FHA class I took said to list the 9 digit number...State code...County Code...and Census tract.

So if I enter 53-053-0713 is this considered correct?[/SIZE]

At one time I believe the full CT was ten digits. The MSA had four digits followed by a dash, then the CT # followed by a period ending with a two digit suffix. For example 1234-1234.05. However the MSA #'s have been inceased to five digits now, so the full number should read 12345-1234.05.

I can not find it in writing anywhere, maybe someone will provide a link, but IMHO the MSA# is the first number, not the state and county codes. I am sure someone will be able to provide the proper link.

Well handout page D-45 says 2 digit state code and 3 digit county code precede the 4 or 6 digit census tract number (6 digits if it has the 2 digit decimal after it). It also says add a zero if census tract is less then 3 digits. Ok I am right....I just had to dig. I did not know how to get the state and county code until that link was provided.

The link is free too :) Just to clarify, the zeros get added to the left of the CT digits (53.01 would be 0053.01)
