Relocating? USA Maps, Facts, Demographics and More

10.03.2013 – Updated periodically with new maps and data

I have been urging young Americans who are able to do so to make plans to get out of large metropolitan areas and relocate into safer, more agrarian communities in more rural regions for about 5 years now.  Kids, your window of opportunity is now running out. I have no way of knowing who is listening, and who is dismissing my advice. There will come a period in the United States [ soon! ] where life in the big cities of more than 1 million people will become nearly intolerable. Unfortunately, more than 80% of the American population now lives in or near a city of one million people or more. It’s well understood that not everyone can get out. But there will be some who know that they are being spiritually GUIDED from within [ and possibly hounded by a spouse from without ]  to leave the big city and make new lives in smaller, safer, more rural communities.

It doesn’t take a fan of REVOLUTION TV to realize that when or if the dollar became worthless, life in a big city would fall apart quickly.  With that in mind i have compiled some information which might be helpful, and below is a re-post of my popular article from 2012 on relocating. I feel at this moment there is still a window of about 18 months to make your move, but not much longer than that. I am well aware I could be completely wrong, but that’s a risk I am willing to take.

I became fascinated with new maps which reveal exhaustive details about the demographic diversity and minutia of our country while I worked on this report. If you would like to delve deeper into the mapped results of the most recent US census in 2010 [ Remember, you paid for it! ] check out this link:

I have located several important videos and other good links which I feel would be VERY HELPFUL if you are now planning a relocation and you live in the United States. I have collected some of this research in this post. Feel free to share what you learn. I would say you have approximately 4 to 18 months, reasonably, to complete this relocation in time to be in a safer region when TSHTF.  One of the first things you will need to know is where the danger is. Before you do anything else via planning, read this report first.

Planning a Relocation? Vital Facts, Videos, Charts, Graphs, Links, Reports

Wikipedia Facts:

“As of January 1, 2013, the United States had a total resident population of 316,783,000,[1] making it the third-most populous country in the world.[2] It is very urbanized, with 82% residing in cities and suburbs as of 2008 (the worldwide urban rate is 50.5%[3]). This leaves vast expanses of the country nearly uninhabited.[4] California and Texas are the most populous states,[5] as the mean center of United States population has consistently shifted westward and southward.[6] New York City is the most populous city in the United States.[7]”

Racial Population Demographics Map of the United States in 2013

Let’s begin with a look at the number of gun deaths [ by region ] since the Sandy Hook shootings. Yep, there’s a chart for that too.

Population Density Per Square Mile USA as of 2012

The interactive “dot map” below shows every person in the United States, revealing amazing information about population density as well as HUGE regions of the country which are practically uninhabited. Here’s the map:

More than 20% of Americans do not speak English at home as of 2011 statistics. Where do they live? The map below shows population densities of non-English speaking families in the US. Each dot represents 10 people:

Where is the greatest concentration of Spanish and Hispanic families now living in the US? The map below shows population densities for Hispanic families in the US. If your family speaks Spanish at home, this information could be helpful for you in any relocation scenario. The map was created in 2011.

What about seeking out like minded people politically? Is that an important factor to you? If so, the map below which charted the 2012 presidential election results with democratic voters shown by blue dots, and GOP voters shown by red dots, might be helpful.

Where do the richest people in the US live? Where do the poorest people in the US live? The map below reveals that information also.

Here’s a map showing all rivers which flow in the United States. See the original here.


Factoring in Severe Weather

We know that incidents of severe weather can alter entire regions of the nation for decades. I’ve collected some historical maps which might show which regions are safer and which regions have had a history of severe weather. In a sudden full crustal displacement, aka a pole shift scenario, all bets are off, and only God really knows what region might suddenly become safe or get savaged.

In a theoretical collapsed society scenario, people will continue to need some way and means of travel. Native Americans traveled the land mass of North America for thousands of years on foot and on horseback before white men came about 275 years ago and startled to settle the continent. The Native Americans had historically studied routes taken by migrating herds of wildlife to build their own travel routes. Animals inevitably will find and follow the shortest and safest route between two points.  Birds do the same.  When white settlers began travel existing trails out west, they followed well known Native American routes which had been place for literally thousands of years. Those routes had followed wild animal paths which had been in place for even longer. The modern US highway system is literally built along far ancient routes traveled by the Native Americans and the wild animal herds which they followed and hunted for food. So you can thank the deer, bison, antelope, elk and many other species of migrating herd animals for the national highway system. Here’s what that road system looked like in 1907. In a collapsed society scenario, some variation of these primal ancient arteries would most likely still be followed to get from one place to another. These main arteries could also become targets for the most severe “highway crime” thus alternative routes would be needed. It’s good to get your overland bearings and to know how these old old land  routes originated. Now you know.
