    Question about Calculation answer in my field data?

      I wrote this python program and it works, but I have a question about the answer it gave me in the field. The answers should have been in decimal points (.0014657). It only did whole numbers like 0, 1 and so on. How do I get the table to fill with decimal point answers? Program below :

      import arcpy
      >>> import os.path
      >>> os.path.basename ("C:\Users\Michelle\Desktop\GIS\FA_Urbans.shp")
      >>> arcpy.AddField_management ("FA_Urbans","POPSQMI","LONG","30")
      <Result 'FA_Urbans'>
      >>> arcpy.CalculateField_management ("FA_Urbans","POPSQMI","!SQMI! / !FID_1!","PYTHON")
      <Result 'FA_Urbans'>
