The density categories were determined by taking the mean of all 60 cities and then the
standard deviation. The two middle categories (i.e. Intermediate-High and Intermediate-Low)
are within ½ standard deviation of the mean. The two outside categories (i.e. High and Low) fall
above and below the ½ standard deviation point described above. Where each city falls is
determined by their population density (population/land area).
