Visualizing the Population of Georgia:

How much space you'd need to store every Georgian


There are times -- perhaps when you're stuck in Atlanta rush hour traffic on Interstate 285 between I-75 and I-85, the 6th busiest stretch of highway in the US -- where it can feel like the whole state of Georgia is right in the same place as you are. Well, what if they were? What would that look like, if you got all 10 million Georgians together in the same place? How much space would they take up?

It's a trickier question than it sounds, and we wanted to answer this ridiculous question with some degree of accuracy. So we needed to figure in size differences between men, women, and children. And then, what do we do about all those 'plus sized' Georgians? 30.5% if the state is obese, after all.

We love challenging questions like this, so we pulled down demographic data on age, gender, and obesity in Georgia to get a more accurate answer to our ridiculous question. Then, we mapped out how much of Atlanta everyone would take up, and calculated how many Empire Sate Buildings Georgians would fill. And finally, because we're SpareFoot, we also figured out how many Georgia storage units you'd need to store every Georgian. Check out our infographic below:
