Word of the Week

Marge

as in: “Population concentrates on the seacoast, and the marges of the Great Lakes: half of the United States population lives within fifty miles of the coasts, and three-quarters of the population lives within seventy-five miles of them.”

Stilgoe, J. R. (2005). Landscape and images. Charlottesville: University of Virginia Press. pp. 4-5.

See the Bureau of the Census website [http://2010.census.gov/2010census/index.php] to learn about the upcoming population census in Spring 2010.
