Area Information

The "Triangle" area of North Carolina is anchored by the cities of Raleigh, Durham, and Chapel Hill. A 2008 Census Estimate put the population at 1,690,557, and the region's population was over 1,700,000 as of July 2009

The research universities of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, North Carolina State University, and Duke University are located in this region. The "Triangle" name was cemented in the public consciousness in the 1950s with the creation of Research Triangle Park, home to numerous high-tech companies and enterprises. Although the name is now used to refer to the geographic region, "The Triangle" originally referred to the universities, whose research facilities, and the educated workforce they provide, have historically served as a major attraction for businesses located in the region.
