Minor civil division. A Census unit of aggregation formally called ``County Subdivision (Census).'' MCDs are typically smaller than counties, and larger than VTDs. However, a single VTD may overlap several MCDs. MCDs are Census summary level 060; MCD codes are stored in the Census variable COUSUBCE. When MCDs are not well defined, we use the Census County Division (CCD), but for simplicity continue to refer to them as MCDs.
