List of Fortune 1000 Companies by Urban Area for 2014

Caitlin Dempsey


The table below shows the total count of Fortune 1000 companies by urban area.  This table is a companion piece to the Geography of Fortune 1000 Companies in 2014 article. The population counts are from the US Census Bureau 2010 census.

The US Census defines a urban area as an area of densely developed residential, commercial and other nonresidential areas.  There are two classifications for urban areas: urbanized areas and urban clusters.  Urbanized areas are those Census defined areas that have a population of 50,000 or more.  Urban clusters are Census defined areas that have a population of at least 2,500 and less than 50,000 people.

The table is sortable by clicking on the up and down arrows within each column to sort in either ascending or descending order.  You can also filter the results by typing in the desired term in the search box.
