Where People In Each State Were Born

I just found an amazing article from the NYT.  It is just data, no editorializing.  Looking at that data for different states is extremely informative about the differing personalities of our 50 states.  I recommend it to all of you.  Spend 20 minutes browsing those graphs for different regions.  It will make you more intelligent and better informed.

Just to get you started, look at and compare NY and NC and VT.  The differences and the timing of those differences are startling.  I think that those differences also have an enormous effect on the culture and the politics of those two states.   Then check out your own state.  Fascinating.

Kudos NYT.   Great journalism.
