Last week, we showed you how concentrated the United States was in a map. Half of the country lives in a measly 146 counties out of well over 3,000.
Our neighbor to the north, Canada, isn't so different. Seventeen out of 298 counties hold half (51% to be precise) of the Canadian population.
So technically, Canada doesn't have "counties," they have "Census Geographic Units" but they serve essentially an identical purpose a counties do here in the states.
Here's half of Canada, and below it is the list of counties.
