year 2000 census population density- think this map is cool but a little out dated cause theres been alot of growth in the south and the west. interesting to see how actualy sparse and rural the northeast is. actually norther new york, new hampshire and maine are more sparse than the deep south. I think the tan to dark green colored areas are rural not orange to red. I would just like to know what people think of this map

I think it's very cool.

Can't wait to see the new updated one after the census next year.

One thought that comes to mind is how some people think most of New York state is like NY city and surprised to learn there are thousands of dairy farms upstate and the Adirondack Park ( 6 million acres) is that largest state park in the country and the third largest (include federal parks) park in the country.
The dark green of the high peaks region is understandable. It may have been more populated back in the logging days.

It's still a very dense state, but has something for everyone. The most urban you can get - to the least you can get. Everything is in NY.

Yes it is a dense state but jsut take off new york city, long island, rocland and westchester county which are all lower new york and you take off about 65 percent of new york's population leaving not much.

"leaving not much" of a population per mile, but an awful lot to enjoy!

True, but if that was all taken off (NYC area), upstate NYS would then become the seventh largest most dense state - still pretty big. Then Buffalo would be considered the largest city in its state!

No, go to wikipedia and type in population density by state, and i did the calculations we would be 18th.

And if all those New Yawkas moved to Alaska it would still be the least dense!
