Description: Enter some digits, and get data containing that number to help put that figure in perspective -- or to just associate it with a fun factoid. Learn what cities have your number as a population, or about its purchasing power in dollars. Many five-digit figures compare with average salaries; employment figures give a context to larger integers; and more "rhetorical flourishes" let you know that, for example, 2,975 soft drink cans laid next to each other would reach as far as 4.00 American football fields, whereas three thousand cans stacked on top of each other would be as high as six Eiffel Towers.
