Population Density Migration 1980-2000

November 19, 2013, by Ken Jorgustin


Whether you are considering a move and would like to know the relative population density or simply would like to know the trends to where the people are generally moving, here is a map that I put together which shows the 20-year migration between 1980 and 2000.

For the most part, the prepper knows that it is better to live outside of highly dense population regions so as to better the odds for survival should there be any sort of major systemic collapse of modern society as we know it today.

There are many sources of online information to discover population density, and I’ve written a few articles on the subject as well as interspersed my thoughts on it throughout various articles on this site…

Survival Retreat Population Density

The following map contains data from NationalAtlas.gov and illustrates where population density has expanded and/or moved during the 20-year period between 1980-2000.

The shades of blue have a higher population density than shades of green.


I enjoy discovering new maps, and I thought some of you would be curious to see this…
