Why post something on the internet which you could easily look up, on the internet? Delaware is 6th densest after NJ, RI, MA, CT, and MD. (To cosmokim and TalonPlays).

True, but once you leave the northern half of New Castle County and go toward Dover in Kent County or go into Sussex County you will see Delaware is technically dense but only because of Wilmington and Newark. It's like Pennsylvania. Pittsburgh and Philadelphia areas are huge but the rest of the state is fairly rural. You technically could but NYC and LA in the middle of Alaska and it would be considered dense because of the super dense cities in the middle. However, in reality relative density throughout the state would be low.

In fact, if the Dakotas were reversed, the whole list would be inverted if it was by area.

In the answer stats, you mean? It's definitely not true for the order in which they are asked (population), with Alaska -the biggest state- in the middle.
