1 Honolulu (A426) and Anchorage (A427) are West self-representing metropolitan primary sampling units because their geographic locations make their consumer markets unique; using population size as the assignment criterion, they belong to the West, size class B/C index. Therefore, Honolulu and Anchorage are published separately, and aggregated with the West nonself-representing metropolitan primary sampling units to form the West, city size B/C (B/C400) index.
2The West nonmetropolitan sample areas do not support publication of a West, size class D index. The primary sampling units are aggregated with the Midwest, size class D (D200) and the South, size class D (D300) indexes to form the national, size class D (D000) index series.
