Then no, you would not consider West Texas high density. Even Houston only has a population density of 3,828 people per square mile. We Texans like our space. One of the larger West Texas towns of Lubbock has a population density of 1,831 people per square mile. You may get up to your 4,500 number if you included livestock, but I really don’t want to ride a bus with livestock.

The area I live in has a population of 72,186 with a population density of 402 people per square mile. Of course the density is kind of distorted since no one around here wants to live up against the prisons and chemical plants in the area. Silly people.
