Unfortunately our sources of data have proven to be unreliable. If you can provide us with more specific information about Grey Rocks, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.

<6>The area value has been supplied by the US Census Bureau and it can be different than the geographic boundaries of Grey Rocks. The value given by the Census Bureau reflects their statistical (or sampling) requirements. For example, if there is a cluster of people living just outside of the community's official boundary, the Census-defined area might be expanded to include that group.

<7>A Housing Unit is a broad term for those places where people live (whether occupied or temporarily vacant), such as a house, an apartment, a mobile home, or an area that is considered as a separate living quarter. Separate living quarters (consisting of one or more rooms) are considered to be those places where people live, sleep and eat separately from others and that have access to the outside (either directly or by a shared hallway).
