State is Getting “Crowded”

Record #:
North Carolina has reached a population of six million, ranking as the tenth most populous state. While North Carolina has always been thought of as a heavily rural state, its population density is rather high. The average population per square mile is 120, making the Tar Heel state almost twice as “crowded” as the entire nation.
