Hoonah-Angoon Census Area, Alaska

Hoonah-Angoon Census Area is a census area located in the state of Alaska, United States. As of the 2010 census, the population was 2,150.

After Yakutat was incorporated as a unified city-borough on September 22, 1992, it was renamed Skagway-Hoonah-Angoon Census Area;[1] When Skagway followed suit on June 20, 2007,[2][3] the census area assumed its current name.


The census area has a land area of 7,444 square miles (19,280 km2) and a water area of 3,468 square miles (8,980 km2). A map showing its current boundaries is shown here:[4]
