Kusilvak Census Area known as Wade Hampton Census Area, is a census area located in the U. S. state of Alaska. As of the 2010 census, the population was 7,459, it therefore has no borough seat. Its largest community is the city of Hooper Bay, on the Bering Sea coast; the census area's per capita income makes it the fourth-poorest county-equivalent in the United States. In 2014, it had the highest percentage of unemployed people of any county or census area in the United States, at 23.7 percent. The census area was named for Wade Hampton III, a South Carolina politician whose son-in-law, John Randolph Tucker, a territorial judge in Nome, posthumously named a mining district in western Alaska for him in 1913; the district became the census area, retaining its name. Over the next century, the name became controversial, with Native residents and others arguing Hampton's name did not represent Alaska and that his personal history as a slave-holding Civil War general was a blemish on the region. In July 2015, Alaska Governor Bill Walker formally notified the U.

S. Census Bureau that the census area was being renamed after the Kusilvak Mountains, its highest range. According to the U. S. Census Bureau, the census area has a total area of 19,673 square miles, of which 17,081 square miles is land and 2,592 square miles is water.
