The Fairbanks-North Star Borough had a population of 82,840 in 2000 and is the second largest urban region in the state. Other population concentrations are in Matanuska-Susitna Borough north of Anchorage with 59,322 people, Kenai Peninsula Borough with 49,691, and Juneau City and Borough with 30,711. In addition to Anchorage, Fairbanks, and Juneau (the state capital), other important towns include Ketchikan, Sitka, and Bethel.
