You got it! Smiley

The darker the shade, the greater the population density in that state, while green states are above the national average and yellow states are below.

My source was this Wikipedia page, which places Texas below the national average.

We used slightly different sources - mine was the wikipedia list of population by state and the wikipedia list of land area by state. The population list is obviously the different one, I think it was a 2006 estimate, rather than the 2000 census actual figures.

Possibly it does, but that's not what I was charting.

You're right. Utah's not a tolerant state at all...

It's demographic data - but not population. For example, it could be proportion of the population with a college degree (it's not, but it's that sort of a thing - demographic, rather than political, but not relating to population growth, etc).

A further hint...

It's a statistic that your Commerce Department is more likely to compile...

Wait...

Is it state median household income?

It is indeed!

Something that I found particularly interesting is how the rankings for State Median Household Income differ from State Median Personal Income. DC rises quite considerably on the second rating, compared with being just under the average in the first.

The first map is mine: 1972 with a uniform 10% swing to McGovern. The sceond one is 1964 with a uniform 10% swing to Goldwater.

I'd been thinking it was how many House Committee Chairs came from each state, but I think that's incorrect?

For a hint: Is it Congressional?

I believe Smid is correct; it's the current number of House committee chairpersons to come from each state.

Colors and numbers matter; Maine should be 61, and Nebraska should be 62

I've got a feeling it's the one I was going to do next. I'll do some research first, though, because if it's not, I'll keep it up my sleave to use myself shortly...

Looks like it isn't what I was planning on popping up, so I won't guess it...
