Feeling a little crowded? It's not your imagination. Half of the United States population lives in these counties and SIX of these counties are in Massachusetts! Business Insider gives us the full list. Click here. I took it a step further...Brace yourself Massachusetts-ites!


California, with 155,779 square miles and a total population of 38+million has about 239 people per square mile. Florida, with 53,624 square miles and a total population of 19+million has about 350 people per square mile. Massachusetts, with only 7,800 square miles and a total population of 6+million has about 839 people per square mile! NO WONDER I CAN NEVER FIND A PARKING SPACE! WOW!  But to help you put that into perspective, NY has 411 ppsm (people per square mile). RI comes in at 1,018 and NJ a whopping 1,195. Phew!
