Go to the main page and type in your zip code in the search engine. It should give you a pretty detailed profile that includes the population density.



Yea, which is why I think looking at census tracts/zipcodes or an agglomeration of them is actually more useful when talking about the density you might actually experience at the ground level. For that, I use city-data! Amazing!

Thanks and like the sarcasm; never realized the forum was here let alone the stats (that part is true) cool stuff

btw my zip density is now 20,119 ppsm; just moved from 20,818 ppsm

But seriously thanks I never realized these stats were right here

Could you please supply me with the 2010 census data that shows U.S land area and new york City persons per square mile. These two variables have stalled my research.

With the latest census data the 5.2 sq mile core of Philadelphia now has ~190K residents, it added ~25K (15% growth) new residents in this area and added more than 4K ppsm density since 2000. The average density in the neighborhoods of Center City and directly sorrounding are now at 36K ppsm.

My NE Portland zipcode has a density of over 11,000 ppsm--which is not bad considering it's mostly older single family homes and some apartment buildings.

The zipcode just over the river containing the much vaunted Pearl District(high density condos) actually only has a density of about 12,000 ppsm, but the zipcode containing much of downtown and Goose Hollow to the west is about 20,000 ppsm. Although going by zipcode can be a little misleading for some neighborhoods since one of the densest parts of NW Portland is in the same zip as much of Forest Park and the industrial district.
