Visualizing the Population of Texas:

How much space you'd need to store every Texan

They say everything is bigger in Texas, and they couldn't be more right.

The Lone Star State is the largest among the continental U.S. and has the second-largest population at 26.95 million people. Well over half of those live in the Texas Triangle, the megapolis made up of Dallas, Houston, Austin and San Antonio. The rest live in Texas' wide open plains, hill country, deserts and mountains.

But what if you got the entire population together in one place, standing shoulder to shoulder? How much space would that occupy?

We at SpareFoot crunched the numbers to find out how much space you would need to store the population of Texas. We even adjusted for obesity, where Texas ranks 11th place in the nation. (Guess not everything is bigger after all.) And because we're SpareFoot, we even tell you how many storage units you'd need. Check out the infographic below:
