Half of the U.S. lives in these 146 counties - is yours one of them?

Well? Let's see how many outliers we have.

OMG, I made the list! I AM somebody!!!

by Anonymousreply 109/06/2013

yup. very interesting.

Harris Count reporting in

by Anonymousreply 309/06/2013

Have formerly lived in three of the counties on that list.

Now live in the county not on that list -- much happier, lower taxes.

by Anonymousreply 409/06/2013

Interesting. I was raised in one on the list ad now live in a different one on the list.

by Anonymousreply 509/06/2013

Harris County here, too. Interesting to see that we are now the third most populous county after L.A. and Cook (IL).

by Anonymousreply 609/06/2013

Every county I've lived in! Cool!

by Anonymousreply 709/06/2013

Harris County here is well. While we're #3 in population, we don't even make the top 50 in density!

by Anonymousreply 809/06/2013

I've lived in five from that group and two not on the list.

Representing Montgomery County, MD here...

by Anonymousreply 1009/06/2013

Yep. Meet me in St. Louie, Louie. But lock your car.

My county has the highest population density outside NYC and SF. You'd think we could support more than one Trader Joe's. But NOOOOOO.

by Anonymousreply 1209/06/2013

Correction to R12. The Trader Joe's I go to is over the county line. We have none.

Philadelphia county, #8. C'mon and visit the "City of Brotherly Love", and environs.

by Anonymousreply 1409/06/2013

I lived in eight of those counties. Now I live on a laid-back subtropical island.

by Anonymousreply 1509/06/2013

I used to live in one of those counties now I live in an adjacent county not on the list.

by Anonymousreply 1609/06/2013

Wow, also Harris County here.

by Anonymousreply 1709/06/2013

Hennepin County, MN, here. We must be fairly low on the top 146, it is delightfully spacious here.

by Anonymousreply 1809/06/2013

Have lived in 3 states in 3 counties, all on the list.

by Anonymousreply 1909/06/2013

#46 on the list. #6 in NJ.

by Anonymousreply 2009/06/2013

Three homes, three regions, all included in the high density areas!

by Anonymousreply 2109/06/2013

Everywhere I've ever lived is in one of those counties. Interesting.

Most of my relatives and friends live in one of those counties too. I have some relatives who definitely don't. They're also mostly bigoted hicks and I'm not close to them.

Middlesex County (#23) reporting.

by Anonymousreply 2309/06/2013

Lived in a bunch of those counties, now live in one not on the list. Also enjoying very low property taxes, and nary an Olive Garden in sight.

by Anonymousreply 2409/06/2013

Los Angeles County here. Too many people in So. Cal.

by Anonymousreply 2509/06/2013

Used to live in Harris. I'm in Galveston Co. now.

by Anonymousreply 2609/06/2013

Interesting, so those counties, that are the majority areheld hostage by all the other counties' ignorance?

by Anonymousreply 2709/06/2013

Because of electoral willy-nillys, yes

by Anonymousreply 2809/06/2013


My top 10 municipalities have more people per square mile than Harrisonburg, VA (#48 in the list).

My capital city has 9142 people per sq. mile. I am part of the United States. But somehow this crappy list decided to omit me.

by Anonymousreply 2909/06/2013

My county is adjacent to one of the 146, which includes Kansas City, KS. Our county is the home of KU, but the town, Lawrence, only has 90,000.

by Anonymousreply 3009/06/2013

St. Louis County MO in the house at #40. Yeah!!!!

It would rank even higher if the city of St. Louis was part of St. Louis County.

by Anonymousreply 3109/06/2013


by Anonymousreply 3209/07/2013

Interestingly, most of those counties vote blue.

by Anonymousreply 3309/10/2013

Orange County, CA here. Agree with the poster who said there are too many people in SoCal.

by Anonymousreply 3409/11/2013

No wonder the country is moving socially to the left.

by Anonymousreply 3509/11/2013

The country would love to move to the left except the pols have rigged it by gerrymandering and by use of the outdated electoral college.

I want a parliamentary election system.

Think about it -- gay marriage was a dream 30 years ago. Maybe if people really get into it, we could change our political system and get rid of the money-sucking dolts who run it today.

It really does sicken me that gun nuts in bumfuck who neither have the population numbers nor do they pay in taxes anywhere near what many of us in the "liberal hand-out" parts do, seem to have more influence than they really should.

by Anonymousreply 3709/11/2013

Harris County!! Yee haw ~

by Anonymousreply 3809/11/2013

Humboldt County. 135,000 people.

by Anonymousreply 3909/12/2013

Are these the most populous counties in the US? Or did they just pick a bunch of counties which would add up to half the population of the US?

I ask that because Lancaster County, PA is on the list, and that's no major metropolitan area, believe me.

by Anonymousreply 4009/13/2013

There's a lot of sparsely populated open space out there.
