This means it was an unincorporated place that the Census Bureau recognized and designated as an identifiable community worthy of data tabulation. However, Fort Bragg was no longer designated as a "census designated place" in the 2010 Census, because the part of Fort Bragg in Cumberland County was annexed by Fayetteville and Spring Lake in 2008 (through an annexation adopted by the NC General Assembly).
