This database reports recent population density figures (persons per square mile) based on annual population, estimated on July 1st of each year, and land area reported by the U.S. Census.  Density from 1990-1999 is based on 1990 land area; 2000-current density is based on land area in each of those years.

 

The benchmark for population estimates is the 2000 Census of Population and Housing.  That methodology is different from earlier years and may result in large changes in population density between 2000 and 2001.
