Interactive Texas Census Map


Recommended Posts

I was looking at the interactive census data map from the Texas Tribune, and noticed something wonderful:

Loving county has a population of 82.

That' up 22% from 67 during the last census.

According to Wikimopedia, it's the last populated county in the nation (up yours, Alaska!): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Loving_County,_Texas

Anyone been?

Anyone been?

Close, but not quite. I've traveled down US 285 from out of New Mexico just the other side of the Loving-Reeves county line. And just last year, I passed just to the south along I-20 between Pecos and Monahans. It's all a very flat area. Loving County is a place that you've really got to be trying to go in order to get there.

The Google Earth imagery is neat in a way, but I'd hate to live there.
