Well, here is a Did You Know classic. We always knew that the U.S. had a fairly urban centric population, with most people living in the cities or its suburbs. We spotted this today:

“It is a very urbanized population, with 82% residing in cities and suburbs as of 2008 (the worldwide urban rate is 50.5%[2]). This leaves vast expanses of the country nearly uninhabited

As of 2011, about 250 million Americans live in or around urban areas. That means more than three-quarters of the U.S. population shares just about three percent of the U.S. land area”
