146 Out of 3,000, and Kent County is One Of Them!
The 146 is the number of the most populated counties in the United States. And 3,000 is the approximate number of counties in the U.S.
(Quick: How many states are in Michigan?)
And the significance of these numbers?
According to Business Insider, half of the population of the United States lives in these 146 counties. That’s about 155 million people.
The other 155 million live in the other 2,853 counties.
Kent County is on this list. There are four counties listed in Michigan — Kent, Wayne, Oakland and Macomb. Fifteen states don’t have a single county on the list.
Thank God I’m a country boy.
And if you guessed or knew 83 is the number of counties in Michigan, you win nothing! But you are smart.
(By the way, about that quick question. The answer: One.)
