Bob Pearson suggested:
Now you have to select overlay -> vector outlines. In the dialog box that comes up make sure "files of type" selection is TIGER files. You may have to browse to the directory you put them in if it isn't the TIGER directory under mapdata. MD will unzip files if necessary so no need to do that yourself.

I understood it but it did not work

TIGER files should not be unzipped and should be located in a sub-folder in Mapdata\tiger\xy where xy is the standard two-letter state abbreviation for the data. ie West Virginia data would be in mapdata\tiger\wv
