As stated in a previous post, se find it difficult to understand why Wendell Cox expends time and effort comparing the gross population densities of various cities and metropolitan areas - without reference to land area and other important factors. His approach might make sense if there was a point to make. However, the relationship between gross population density - nothing else considered - and transportation needs, traffic levels and so forth is less strong that Cox implies (albeit tacitly). Professionals and advocates know this well, and we think that Cox does, too. For balance of article, see http://www.publictransit.us/ptlibrary/Wendell_Density_Dense_2.htm.
