NOTE: 2005 numbers used in this report differ from those in the June 2005 report because the facilities used for the 2005 analysis were revised to include: (1) intercity ferry service across the entire United States (the June 2005 report included only intercity ferry facilities that were part of the Alaska Marine Highway System) and (2) only airports with scheduled intercity passenger transportation (the June 2005 report included a few airports with only commuter air service). Additionally, the method used for determining coverage was revised in this report to more accurately compute the coverage area and applied to the 2005 data.

Rural population counts derived from 2000 Census in both years.
