City-Place Population & Housing Change: 1990 to 2010
-- tools & data to examine trends & patterns
As of Census 2010, there were 29,514 cities/places in the United States. The interactive table provided below shows the population and housing units for the 1990 Census, 2000 Census and 2010 Census for cities/places defined as of Census 2010. "Places" refers to incorporated cities as well as Census Designated Places (CDPs). CDPs are areas defined by the Census Bureau for statistical purposes and have no legal powers. Only places defined as of Census 2010 are included. If the place did not exist as of 1990 or 2000, the 1990 and 2000 columns show a zero value.
Illustrative GIS/mapping applications focused on educational attainment, patterns of economic prosperity and population distribution by census block are shown in the Gallery section. A partial list of city/school district Gallery sections may be accessed using the links shown in the scroll section below.
