Map of the Month – September 2020
Why We Live Here!
Maps & Facts periodically updates our “Population Density” map shown below. It is still amazing that San Francisco and Manhattan’s populations, together, easily fit inside Phoenix’s political boundaries!
This month we also compared population change for Phoenix (City of), San Francisco, and Manhattan. Interestingly, Phoenix, San Francisco, and Manhattan’s populations increased from 2017 through 2019. However, from 2019 to 2020, while Phoenix’s population continued to increase, San Francisco and Manhattan’s populations decreased.
One can speculate as to the many reasons. Regardless, there is a trend away from uber high density cities toward livable low-density cities − such as Phoenix. This trend will likely accelerate.
