Q:  

I am selecting census tract data for several counties within the US using American FactFinder. I am not able to find certain census tracts. For instance, for New York county, New York, I know there is a tract 197.01 and yet the highest tract number showing via American FactFinder is 99.

A:  

When you use "Geo within Geo" within American FactFinder, the number order is alphabetical. Thus, the census tracts are listed as 1, 10.01, 10.02, 100, 101, . . . 197.01, 197.02, 198, 199, 2.01, 2.02, etc.

If you do not use "Geo within Geo," the number order for geographic areas is numeric and you'll find 197.01 where you expect to find it.
