Resident Density Opens in new windowOverview

The map of residential population is included for two primary reasons. Residential density can be an important determinant of whether or not a residential area can support a neighborhood business. In addition, it is important to understand the condition of infrastructure and availability of services near where people live. For this map, residential population is estimated using 2000 census data and locally collected data to estimate household size and vacancy rates based on demographics and structure type.
