Half of US PopulatIon Lives In < 10% of the land mass

Half of the total US population is clustered in less than 5% of its counties — that is just 146 out of over 3000. Eyeballing it, it looks like about ~7% of the continental land mass (not counting Alaska, which is huge).

Imagine that: Much less than 10% of the land mass houses more than half the population.
