Title

Four Corner States Population Density, by County (2018)

Subject

This is a map showing the population in people per square mile, by county, within the four corner states (Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, and Utah).

Description

This map illustrates the number of people per square mile that live in each county within the four corner states. This measure is called the population density. The majority of countries in the four corner states had a population density of 20 or less people per square mile in the county. There were even less, just 15, counties with more than 710 people per square mile in the county. These counties are generally around the capital cities of each state: Salt Lake City, Utah, Denver, Colorado, Phoenix, Arizona, and Santa Fe, New Mexico.

One factor that would influence the population density greatly is the amount of federal land and tribal lands or reservations.[1]
