    It is an interesting graph, and concept.
    I am not sure quite how reliable it is as when I read it I noticed one glaring, and quite silly error.
    He talks about New York and gives a population of 8.4m. That is the population of New York CITY. The population of the state is about 19.6m.
    It might seem trivial but if you can miss an error like that how many others might there be?
