This is terrible! Wait, I forgot, these numbers mean absolutely nothing.

I'm not sure what you think these numbers represent, but it's like
taking a ratio for each family in a neighborhood of acres/child and
deciding if those kids have too much yard work.

"Oh no, the Collins family has 2 acres per child...those poor kids! Uh,
you say that 3.5 acres of your yard is a lake?"
