    If you follow the link to URBANIZED AREA:

    Staten Island meets the density standard of at least 1000/sq mile (by 7 times), but not the contiguous standard.

    I know. It's the government, so it's dumb.

    Statistics are only meaningful if they convey a meaningful and therefore otherwise observable truth.

    That brings us back to the original intent of this thread. It has since wandered into numerically-based maunderings and fantasies of little genuine interest. (At least to a maven of reality.)

    Who really cares what pass application of flawed numerical rules brings you to?
