The United States of America is a country in North America that extends from the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific Ocean and shares land borders with Canada and Mexico. The United States is a federal constitutional republic, with its capital in Washington, D.C., District of Columbia.
Hampton is an independent city in Virginia. It is on the southern end of the Virginia Peninsula, bordering on Hampton Roads and Chesapeake Bay. As of the 2000 census, the city population was 146,437; but the 2004 census estimate shows that the city's population has grown to 159,983. The Hampton Roads is the fourth largest metropolitan area in the southeastern United States and the largest between Washington, D.C. and Atlanta, Georgia.
The former Native American community of Kecoughtan settled in 1610 in the Virginia Colony forms the basis for Hampton's claim to the oldest continuously occupied English settlement in North America. Considered strategic for defense purposes against other Europeans, it was seized from the natives by colonists under Virginia's Governor, Sir Thomas Gates in 1610. Long a town in Elizabeth City County, the current independent city of Hampton became much larger after a municipal consolidation with the incorporated town of Phoebus and Elizabeth City County, Virginia in 1952. Today, the City of Hampton essentially incorporates the boundaries of Elizabeth City County which was created in 1643 from Elizabeth River Shire, one of the eight original shires of 1634 in Colonial Virginia, with several minor exceptions.
According to the United States census bureau, the city has a total area of 352.8 square kilometers. 134.1 square kilometers of it is land and 218.7 square kilometers of it is water.
The age distribution is 24.2 percent under the age of 18, 12.6 percent from 18 to 24, 32.5 percent from 25 to 44, 20.4 percent from 45 to 64, and 10.3 percent who were 65 years of age or older. The median age was 34 years. For every 100 females there were 98.3 males. For every 100 females age 18 and over, there were 96.6 males.
