Not very accurate, lists e.g. Bristol population far lower than official stats.

It seems that the larger the radius the more accurate which doesn't make sense. Using a 20mi radius is pretty accurate in the US but places I tried in other areas are hit and misses.

This works. However, there are quite a few simple usability related bugs. Try and follow the instructions. Sometimes, I click "Find population" without ensuring that a circle is marked on the map, which would keep it spinning.

I can not get a population radius around any addresses that I enter. The site must be broken.
Can anyone reccommend a better site?
By Ehren Jacobs on 8th November 2017
Site just hanged and hanged when I did a query.

Same result for 3 mile radius as 10 mile radius....and in St Louis Mo. I think it is bogus

Worked fine for me as of Sept 1, 2017, on New Zealand, Peru, Puerto Rico and several other places. Not exactly accurate but within ~10% of expected value.

This is AWFUL. New Zealand pulled up fewer than 500K residents. Are you kidding me??? (NZ has 4 million plus people!)

This is a great website! You should try it

Tried Manhattan and it gave me a population of only half the actual estimated population. What a joke!

Which Census is this from?
On 21st July 2017
There's a problem, I get the same population of just over 10 million whether I use a 100, 60, 10 or 1km radius circle!
By Stub on 21st July 2017
may not want to allow overlap, also tried the whole world and got under 700 million. that's off by an order of magnitude.

Hi, is the population data based on 2010 census data? Thank you!

If at all possible, there should be population vs age groups so if you want to know how many people within the age range of 15-20 or 21-25 or something

Doesn't seem to like circles with smaller radius, e.g. 1 km.
I would also like to know how many households there are in the chosen area, e.g. so we can roughly work out how many people need to be contacted about a new road scheme.

The numbers for my area seem to be very close to what I was expecting (based on US Census).
By Jason on 22nd March 2017
I m sorry to say that this is crap! A 20km radius around Zagreb gives 93,019 People, but there are 10 times more people in the area.
Please indicate how you calculate these numbers

This is a very valuable application. Thank you for your effort
