New Wesbite: US Counties

Posted by on April 19, 2002


**Counties in the United States

Did you know there were over 3,000 counties in the United States? Me neither. You can get information on them at, a page maintained by the National Association of Counties.

Pick a state from the drop-down menu or use the image map of the US. You’ll get a list of counties in that state along with its 2000 population and its size in square miles. Click on a county name and you’ll get a link to that county’s site (if available), contact information for the county seat, county populations is 1980, 1990, and 2000, and a list of the county’s elected officials. Sometimes e-mail addresses for county officials are included as well.

There are a few external links on a county page, too, including links to census data and political information. Lots of material in one easy-to-read place. Worth a look.
