Footnotes ...

<1>Population counts have been provided by the U.S. Census Bureau.

- Return to Citation

<2>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' distance beginning at Mecca. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, private property - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Mecca) to Point B.

- Return to Citation

<3>The communities in our count are those provided by the 2010 Census, so keep in mind that our population rings will only include the people living in those communities. Smaller communities usually don't participate directly in the Census and therefore they won't be included. While our count is a close approximation, it shouldn't be considered as a complete or accurate count.
