Incorporated Places With 100,000 or More Inhabitants in 2006 - Population: 1980 to 2006

Added By Infochimps

The dataset illustrates changes in populations from 1980 to 2006, in now highly populated incorporated places in the US. 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 27):

0166 0257 0362 0429 0445 0446 0459 0461 0462 0464 0465 0466 0467
