4,800 ppl/sq mile. Low for an LA suburb, but nearly half of our town is industrial warehouses and refineries. The density where most people live is probably closer to 7,000 which is still on the low side for an inner LA suburb.

How do you find the zip code density stats?

Current Zip Code (90028): 20,000 ppsm
My last Zip Code (02135): 14,700 ppsm

My hometown is 4k ppsm, though that includes a lot of undeveloped farmland on the outskirts. Looks like most people live between 3-15k ppsm in the city.

I live outside city limits. According to the Census Bureau, the density of my county in 2010 was 36.4/sq mi.

My zip has 6,678 ppsm with a population total of 32,442.

The last zip I lived in had 5,179 ppsm with a total of 41,953 (more suburban).

The densest zip I lived in has 8,473 ppsm with 44,909 people. This is within the same metro but three different cities. So the average around here is about 6,000 ppsm with 35K-40K residents per zipcode.

I used Zip Code Lookup to find the stats and just divided the population over the area.

Using that method I get 6,934 ppsm for my zip which is pretty close to the 7,000 ppsm that I guessed a year ago.
