Hey guys! I'm a poster from Atlanta, and while I was doing some research and the pop. densities of certain areas of the country, I started wondering about something: The census bureau says that the pop density of Miami Dade county is only 1,315 people per square mile! Now, that's nothing to scoff at, but I'm sure the density in the populated areas is much much higher, since a lot of the county is protected wildlife areas. So, does anybody know what the density of the inhabited part of Miami Dade county is?

Your right on point that the population density is way off because so much of the county is not inhabitable and also water. I did a post once with very very rough guess using google earth and making a rough estimate of the lines where people live etc.. I think it was around 4.500 or so per square mile but I will have to double check tomorrow. This included some water. But if you go to the cities information you will see Miami and many of its suburbs especially the ones in the barrier islands are very densely populated. also this takes into account the rural areas of Homestead with a decent amount of farms.

Miami 12,139
Miami Beach 12,589
Miami Shores 1,562
Miami Lakes 3,808
Coral gables 3,210
Pinecrest 2,507

According to this http://www.miamidade.gov/budget/FY20.../Where-Who.pdf

"The population density within the urban area is 5,896 people per square mile."

That's referring to Miami-Dade County, which would make it a a little more dense than Cook County, Illinois.

Here, click on VIEW MORE MAPS and select the purple map:

I live adjacent to neighborhoods over 20k people per square miles.

You welcome.

I recently read that the developable land area of MiamiDade was just under 500 square miles. At 2.5 million residents, that would put the ppl/sm a bit above 5000. I suspect that the urban area you mention might exclude some of the very southern "farmland" near Florida City/Homestead.
