Fourth District Population
In 2004, 16.9 million people—or 5.7% of the U.S. population—called the Fourth District home. The majority of District residents (77.5%) lived in metropolitan areas. Of the 169 District counties, Cuyahoga had the largest population (nearly 1.4 million) and Kentucky’s Robertson County had the smallest (2,300). Like many counties in Fourth District Kentucky, Robertson’s relatively low population resulted from its slight dimensions and its rural nature.
