Have you ever wondered how Columbus sizes up compared to other cities around the world? Brian Shreckengast at Sparefoot Blog created a helpful infographic to show the population density of the capital city.
Columbus has experienced steady population growth over the last few years, but it’s still nowhere near as dense as larger metropolises like New York City or Paris. With a population density of 3,914 people per square mile, Columbus dwarves cities like Anchorage and Jacksonville.
As more and more people move into the Columbus city limits, what does that mean for residents? Cities that have higher population density often have more services for residents. Research has shown that cities with higher population densities also tend to have higher numbers of working artistic and cultural employees who earn more, produce more and purchase more, all of which are great for continued economic growth.
