UNITED STATES CENSUS OF 1900

In June, 1900, the twelfth census of the United States was taken. The population (exclusive of 129,518 Indians, not taxed), according to the official count, was 76,303,387, an increase of 12,937,008, or 20.7 per cent, over that of 1890. The average density of population per square mile was 25.6. The center of population is computed to be at a point 6 miles southeast of Columbus, Ind., in lat. 39° 9' 36'' N., and lon. 85° 48' 54'' W., having moved 14 miles westward during the decade. . Of the total population 28,411,698, or 37.3 per cent, lived in the 1,158 cities of 4,000 inhabitants or more. There were 19 cities with more than 200,000 inhabitants, 38 with more than 100,000, 78 with more than 50,000, and 161 with more than 25,000. The following tables show the population of the States by counties in 1890 and 1900, together with the population of the county-towns in 1900, and the population of all the incorporated towns, cities, villages, and boroughs of the United States with more than 1,000 population in 1900 :
