American Mirror

Here’s an interesting feature from the Associated Press: a map of the United States which displays how average the states are, or how much they deviate from the norm, in a variety of measures derived from the most recent US Census data.

Illinois scores most typical (average) overall, but as you’ll see as you run through the various displays, Kansas also scores as more “average” than not on most measures.

The display includes age, education, income, industry, migration, race and hometowns.
