Kentucky Population Density
license: gpl-3.0

Created via the U.S. Atlas project as make topo/ky-counties.json, after modifying the Makefile to include population and area statistics. These per-county values are then used to compute the population density of each county.

topojson \
	--id-property=FIPS,STATE_FIPS \
	-p name=COUNTY,name=STATE,+population,area=+SQUARE_MIL \
	-e KY-counties-pop.csv \
	-- shp/ky/counties.shp shp/ky/states.shp
