Selecting Urban and  suburban census tracts

Question asked by mykotti on Sep 25, 2017



I have two shapefiles, the first is census tracts for metro city, and the second is for the city. I wanted to to be able to select the census tracts from the metro city that fall into the city so that I will be able to have two dummy variables one for urban =1 and the other for suburban = 0.. That is, census tracts fall in the city are considered urban, and those don't fall are suburban.  Any ideas about how to do this process using GIS..
