The quietest city in the United States here the land area is approximately 241 square miles meaning the city’s total population density is only about 2,267 people per square mile Tucson has indeed witnessed a decrease in population density over time one possible explanation for this decline is that tuon has expanded into many large

Population density in New Orleans may be due to the city’s unique history with hurricanes for example after Hurricane Katrina devastated much of New Orleans in 2005 nearly 100% of the city’s total population had to temporarily evacuate leading to a decrease in the total population from around 450,000 to about 208,000 people by
