Does anyone know where I can find a list for this data? I don't mean the most population in relation to area either. I mean states like Nevada, where 95% of the people that live there are either in Reno or Vegas. Does anyone know if a list like this is compiled?

Alaska, Minnesota, and Utah are the ones that come to mind. Most of the population is clustered in one or two cities, and the rest of the state is rural/wilderness.

I know in Ohio 75% live in urbanized areas or about 8.25 million people. Cleveland, Cincy, Dayton, Youngstown, Toledo, Akron, Canton, Columbus, etc.. not sure how many states have that many major cities.

And according to this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of...lation_density

it's the 9th most densely populated.

1 New Jersey
2 Rhode Island
3 Massachusetts
4 Connecticut
5 Maryland
6 New York
7 Delaware
8 Florida
9 Ohio
10 Pennsylvania

Many states, especially if you consider cities like Youngstown, Dayton, and Canton to be major. I am not sure that I would call them that.

If we're talking about density ( Pop/sq. mile), then RI, NJ and MA would be the leaders..

I appreciate the response, but for the most part their not what I was looking for (except BPerone and flyingwriter). I was hoping for a list of states whose population is most concentrated within a few cities and the rest of the state being vastly uninhabited. I'm guessing statistics for this just don't exist though. I'm guessing Colorado would be high on the list as well because of the mountains that are probably hard to live on.

Well most people in Ohio do in fact live in Cleveland, Akron, Toledo, Columbus, Cincinnati, Youngstown, and Canton... the rest of the state is barren land and farms with little to no people. So I can't be too far off base with my response.
