So I have this huge shapefile, it contains a lot of census data in addition to block groups and a city boundary. What I need is to 
export the shapefile but only preserving polygons not all the census data attributes like income, race, and so on. I need to edit each individual census block, and would like attribute table with a smaller amount of fields. Is this possible?
