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

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.
