Montana 2000 Population Density 1-km grid

Abstract Population, in persons per square mile, of Montana from the 2000 Census. This data is a smoothed-over representation of Montana's population density surface, designed to emphasize small areas with high population density. It was derived from U.S. Census Bureau 2000 TIGER files and population counts. The original data was resampled to a 100-meter grid, smoothed, and the highest resulting density of the 100-meter cells in each 1-kilometer grid cell was assigned to the cell.When comparing this data set to the similar data sets available from the State Library for the 1990 and 2010 Census, it is important to realize that the change of population density at a location is likely to be the result of a change in the configuration of the Census Blocks rather than a change in population density. The 2000 Census Block data is available at https://ftpgeoinfo.msl.mt.gov/Data/Spatial/NonMSDI/Collections/Census/cblock2000.zip.
