I love your thinking. That's the kind of density I like. You got a rep point from me. I'll be moving to North Dakota in a couple of years and just love the low density and wide open plains - to me that's heaven on earth and the way people were meant to live.

A previous poster mentioned that one of the counties in New Jersey had a population density of over 13000 per square mile. That number seems extremely high, but if true, that would be hell on earth to me. I can not even conceive of living in that kind of environment.

i grew up in a city in nj that had 40,000 per sq mile. (city was 3 sq miles, but 1 was uninhabited and pop was 80,000 at the time) LOVED IT! my 450 per sq mile now feels like the middle of nowhere - couldn't imagine living in anything less than that - I'd go crazy.

I'd go insane if I spent more than a day in that. I spent one day in NYC once, and I was close to insane by the end of the day. Wall to wall people, and talk about pollution!

I think that New Jersey would take the prize here, but what about Connecticut, Massachusetts, Maryland, Rhode Island, Delaware, possibly
Ohio and Florida.

Texas has a large population, but also large land area, same with California.

What do you think??
Ohio is dense. Oh wait your talking about population, I would say New Jersey.
