The U.S.: One Big Empty Country

Released May 1st, the Census Bureau estimated the 2007 population of the entire U.S. to be 301,621,157. The continental 48 states encompasses 1,922,254,341 acres. If we put two people to a household and gave them each an acre of land, it would take 7.85% of that area.

Jeffery Sachs can relax.
