Your stats are incorrect and you put them in order and Minneapolis isn't on there even though the entire city has a density of 7,245 which is denser the any zip code in Charlotte. Try checking your facts because a lot of the area codes on your list are not the densist for the cities in which they are in.

It looks like you are using the zip code stats from the 2000 census. The 59,251 number you quoted for zip code 60626 in Chicago is from year 2000. The population decreased in that zip code to 50,139 in 2010. Chicago decreased in overall population from 2000 to 2010 by 200,418 as well as a decrease (some significant) in the zip codes.

I added Minneapolis although I mentioned to you earlier that my list was not an exhaustive list encompassing all cities. The title says "Select U.S. Cities" (i.e. the ones I selected). By the way, the Minneapolis stats you quoted a few posts ago for zip code 55404 was also from the 2000 census. There was a decrease in population in zip code 55404 as well.

You can see for yourself right here:

I should take out the Chicago 60601 zip code and replace it with the 60660 zip code, which has a population density of 33,400 with a population of 42,752 in 1.28 sq. mi. of land.

See below, and I've also added Minneapolis

There are more than 2 cities in the Midwest. It's funny how people forget about the Midwest. Milwaukee, St.Louis, Cleveland, Cincinnati, Detroit, Kansas City MO, St. Paul, Indianapolis, Louisville, Columbus, Des Moines, Omaha.

And just 1 from the Midwest. All I said is people act as if the Midwest doesn't exist. The Midwest is just as important as the rest of the country. This country would be brought to its knees if the Midwest suddenly disappeared
