Here's an interesting visual. Seems to be split almost exactly down the middle, except for California throwing off the balance. I sure am glad I don't live in the eastern half. What I really want is to live in one of the white-colored areas. You breed, like rats.



I apologize. I don't think I can link the color code to this page. Here's the link on Wikipedia: Image:USA-2000-population-density.gif - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Well I could wish we had the color code to go with the map.

Yes it would be nice if people spread out in the country a bit.

I wouldn't. I love this post. Probably because I love dense cities like NYC, DC, Chicago, and San Francisco. The BosWash megalopolis is hittin.

wow, you guys have some pretty big counties out west (local population is 12,750 per square mile, I guess that is a fair amount of people eh?).

Boswash and ChiPitts are basicly the two major ones, the rest of the east is based around a city or two.

All the way from Cleveland and Chicago its really dense.Theres many urban areas betwwen the two.Thats one reason I love the Eastern half of this country.From Cleveland this is the distance to these places.
Chicago-450-500 miles takes about 5 1/2 hours
Detroit-150-250 miles,never been there,but probably takes 2-3 hours
St. Louis-600-700 miles 6-7 hours
NYC-700-800 miles 6-9 hours
So yeah being in the Eastern half of the country your pretty close to many other big metropolitan areas.It almost feels like the Midwest is just one big state really.Or the Northeast.Boston,NYC,Baltimore,Philly,Washington DC,all fairly close to each other.

Yeah most of the big cities in the west have the dark blue for thier counties,than you leave that county and your in a sparsly populated place.The only state that has many dense counties in the west is California.

LOL - ALL of NJ is dark blue. I must be from the Northeast, my town's density is about 450 ppl per sq/mi and I feel like i'm in the middle of nowhere, LOL. Makes sense, since I grew up in a place where the density was about 40,000 per sq/mi
