The Geography of Business Density

Thanks to BRO reader GW for passing along an interesting stat recognizing Buffalo-Niagara MSA* as #17 in top 20 large metros (1 Million+) with the highest business density (establishments per sq. mile). 
 
“The variation in business establishment density across metros is substantial, from a high of almost 80 businesses per square mile to a low of 0.2. The average for U.S. metros is 6.8 establishments per square mile.” – Richard Florida – Atlantic Cities
Buffalo at 17.1 establishments per square mile is in decent shape by this metric. – GW
