2000 Population Density Dataset

The 2000 Population Density Dataset was produced from 2000 Census block data. The total 2000 population count for each Census block was converted to a density value of people per 10,000 square feet. The blocks were then converted to a grid format with a grid size of 100 feet by 100 feet (10,000 square feet) and each grid was assigned the block's value of people per 10,000 square feet. The screen capture below displays the population density values with the browns being low and the blues high.
