Census Tracts are the smallest geographical unit for which detailed Census data (income, education, poverty status, etc.) is provided.
Before you can find data at the Tract level, you must know the Tract numbers which encompass the area you are interested in. Here are two ways to find these numbers:
Unlike American FactFinder, Census.Data.Gov. currently doesn't have an Address Search feature that allows users to input an address and get a Census tract number. Instead, the Census data website uses a search function called GeoCoder. Users select the address option under "Find Geographies using..." header.
There's a lot of information returned, but towards the bottom is a header called "Census Tracts" with the Census tract name.
The Census has an FAQ available with more information on how to use this search function.
