California Human Density DatasetEntry ID: CA_ICE_HumanDensity
Abstract: This dataset contains human population density for the state of California and
a small portion of western Nevada for the year 2000. The population density is
based on US Census Bureau data and has a cell size of 990 meters.
The purpose of the dataset is to provide a consistent statewide human density
GIS layer for display, analysis and modeling purposes.
The state of California, and a very small portion of western Nevada, was
divided into pixels with a cell size 0.98 km2, or 990 meters on each side. For
each pixel, the US Census Bureau data was clipped, the total human population
was calculated, and that population was divided by the area to get human
density (people/km2) for each pixel.
