Well? Let's see how many outliers we have.
Half of the U.S. lives in these 146 counties - is yours one of them?

Harris Count reporting in

Have formerly lived in three of the counties on that list.
Now live in the county not on that list -- much happier, lower taxes.

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

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

Harris County here is well. While we're #3 in population, we don't even make the top 50 in density!
|by Anonymous||reply 8||09/06/2013|
I've lived in five from that group and two not on the list.

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.

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.

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

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

Wow, also Harris County here.

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

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

No wonder the country is moving socially to the left.
|by Anonymous||reply 35||09/11/2013|
The country would love to move to the left except the pols have rigged it by gerrymandering and by use of the outdated electoral college.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.

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.

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