Incorporated Places by Population Size: 1960 to 2006

Added By Infochimps

This concise dataset shows the relationship between population sizes and percent distributions in US incorporated places from 1960 to 2006. An incorporated place can be a city, town or village, and census designated place (CDP), which resembles a city, town or village but lacks its own government. Beginning with April 2000, estimates base data refer to boundaries in effect on January 1, 2006, 1990 to 2000 data refer to boundaries in effect on January 1, 2000, and data for 1980 refer to boundaries in effect for the 1980 census.


The Statistical Abstract files are distributed by the US Census Department as Microsoft Excel files. These files have data mixed with notes and references, multiple tables per sheet, and, worst of all, the table headers are not easily matched to their rows and columns.

A few files had extraneous characters in the title. These were corrected to be consistent. A few files have a sheet of crufty gibberish in the first slot. The sheet order was shuffled but no data were changed.

The tables that were changed (this is table 28):

0166 0257 0362 0429 0445 0446 0459 0461 0462 0464 0465 0466 0467
0469 0479 0480 0481 0482 0483 0484 0485 0486 0487 0559 0628 0629
1144 1227 1231

This dataset consists of a table of 21 rows and 22 columns.

115.9 represents 115,900,000 See Appendix III

    Census 2000 population as documented in the Count Question Resolution program
    and geographic program revisions.
