This map shows the most negative aspects of each state in USA. Also, posted with this map was an alternate map which gave the most positive aspect of each state. Apparently, most of the ‘shameful’ things about each state can be backed up by reliable statistics, which means the map gives us a realistic insight to the negative side of America’s states. When juxtaposed with all the ‘awesome’ things about each state, this make becomes even more interesting as for some states it shows important correlations between the good and bad aspects of each state. For example, the worst thing about Ohio is that it is supposedly the nerdiest state and the best thing about it is that it has the highest library usage. However, many of the relationships between the good and bad don’t make sense.
