SF Population Density

density_map.gifI recently came upon this population density chart, including this pictured map, which is courtesy of the US Census Bureau (which, in itself, is a great site for finding out all you ever wanted to know about your community).

Darker areas in this map indicate higher density areas. The Tenderloin area of Post/Leavenworth/Ellis/Van Ness ranks the highest, at 99,085. The least populated neighborhood of SF is the Outer Sunset at 25,015. My new neighborhood, Hayes Valley, ranks #18 in the list at 49,141.

How does your neighborhood rank? Are you surprised, or are the numbers pretty much what you expected?

    My current ‘hood is Outer Richmond, which hits on the list @ #40 with 34,031. This was pretty much what I expected. My hopes are to move to Lower Haight/Cole Valley next year :O

    How interesting! Just one more factoid to explain why I live in the Outer Richmond.

    Unsurprising.
