Zombie Epidemic Infographic

If you’ve seen one zombie movie, you’ve seen them all.  Inevitably, a bunch of people slip through the cascading doom and manage to hole up in some confined area (farmhouse, shopping mall, island, take your pick). Zombies manage to break into said confined area or survivors are forced to venture outside.  Most of them die.  A couple survive, which couple usually includes a hot girl.

But what if you could watch a zombie outbreak from a macro scale? Where would it hit first?  Who would survive?  We took these questions and more and, using current immigration, population density, climate, and agriculture data, came up with this infographic.  Spoiler: avoid Southern California like the, well, plague!
