These data are based on the Census 2010 Summary File 1 (SF1) census block level data. The SF1 urban/rural version (released September 2012) was used to compute the urban and rural population for the 113th/114th congressional district boundaries.

Defining Urban and Rural
The population in urban census blocks is defined as urban for purposes of this section. How can the Wyoming population be 65% urban? As an example ... see in table above. There are 16,147 census blocks in Wyoming that are urban and whose land area is approximately 195 square miles with population of 364,993. There are 70,057 census blocks in Wyoming that are rural and whose land area is approximately 96,899 square miles with population of 198,633. The population that is urban (population in urban blocks) is approximately 65% of the state (100*364993/(364993+198633)). All terms and numbers here relate to Census 2010.
Data in this section were developed using the Census 2010 Summary File 1 (SF1) data. The urban/rural vintage SF1 (released September 2012) contains an urban/rural indicator for each of the more than 11 million census blocks. ProximityOne coded each census block record with the 113th Congressional District code. The block level population and housing data were then aggregated into urban and rural population and housing unit counts for each 113th Congressional District.
