“I’ve been out walking as I often do
humming a tune and thinking of you
I saw a man asleep by the road
hanging on tightly to his little load
he’s got nothing but the road under his head
I’m so fucking glad that I sleep in a bed
and I’m so ashamed that I get up every day
and think of all the reasons I can piss it away.”

Nobody lives here: The nearly 5 million Census Blocks with zero population
A Block is the smallest area unit used by the U.S. Census Bureau for tabulating statistics. As of the 2010 census, the United States consists of 11,078,300 Census Blocks. Of them, 4,871,270 blocks totaling 4.61 million square kilometers were reported to have no population living inside them. Despite having a population of more than 310 million people, 47 percent of the USA remains unoccupied.
Green shading indicates unoccupied Census Blocks. A single inhabitant is enough to omit a block from shading.
