City-Place Population & Change 1990 to 2000
Use the interactive ranking table in this section to view 1990 census population, Census 2000 population and population change between 1990 and 2000 for all U.S. city/places with population of 5,000 or more as of Census 2000. Development of the data in the ranking table starts with places as they existed as of Census 2000. Boundaries of some places changed between 1990 and 2000; boundary changes are not shown in the ranking table. Some places that exist today did not exist in 1990. Population data for these areas are shown with -1 value.
The start-up view shows places ranked in descending order for the U.S. based on Census 2000 population. Click a column header to reverse the sort order. To view places in a specific state, click Show All button and then select the state of interest (below ranking table).
City/place demographics are included in the Proximity MetroDynamics (MD) and Situation & Outlook (S&O). In combination, MD and S&O offer the best and unique information to assess the existing situation and how geodemographic-economics are changing across the U.S.

City/Place GIS Resources and Pattern Analysis
Use Proximity current or historical vintage city/place point and/or boundary shapefile with integrated geodemographic-economic data to view/analyze maps and thematic patterns for one or all U.S. city/place(s). Updated annually, view city/place boundaries/locations in context of streets, counties, school districts, and other geography using the CommunityViewer software.

More About Cities and Places
The focus of this section is on places/areas of population concentration. Cities are incorporated cities which have governmental authority and boundaries as established by the corresponding state. Most cities are places of population concentration and differentiated from towns which are adminstrative subdivisions of counties. There are many areas of population concentration that are not incorporated. These areas are referred to as Census designated places (CDPs). CDP boundaries are estalished by the Census Bureau working with local organizations. The term "CDP" is used in the place name when the place is a CDP.
Proximity develops geodemographic-economic data and analytical tools and helps organizations knit together and use diverse data in a decision-making and analytical framework. We develop custom demographic/economic estimates and projections, develop geographic and geocoded address files, and assist with impact and geospatial analyses. Wide-ranging organizations use our tools (software, data, methodologies) to analyze their own data integrated with other data. Contact Proximity (888-364-7656) with questions about data covered in this section or to discuss custom estimates, projections or analyses for your areas of interest.
