10. The McDonalds Map
As you know, maps can be used to illustrate many types of interesting data, but perhaps none as important as this one, which shows how far you are away from a McDonalds. Yes, that’s right, those Golden Arches aren’t too far away from you no matter where you are in the continental United States, and with more than 13,000 restaurants you are never more than 115 miles away from one. Can you guess where that might be???
America is a nation of animal lovers, with more than 78 million dogs and 85.8 million cats being kept as pets, let alone the numerous other creatures that keep their human companions company. Along with our favourite friends, though, come unwanted companions, like fleas. They can transmit diseases to animals and humans, and can be an irritating presence in the home. They, like other insects, are more active during certain weather conditions, though, and this is where this next map comes in.
8. Murder and Manslaughter
Murder and Manslaughter are, unfortunately, things that happen around the world, and the US is no different. You may be surprised to know the areas with the highest mortality rates due to these reasons, though, and, conversely, the places that are the safest.
7. Home Ownership
Home ownership is one of the pillars of the American dream. Sure, not everyone aspires to buying their own house, but a lot of Americans do. This first map shows the areas where home ownership is highest and lowest, based on data from the last census. For the purposes of gathering the information, ownership is defined as where the person or people who own a property also live in it. The darker the colour blue, the higher the percentage.
Sexually transmitted diseases are a part of modern life but, despite the warnings and efforts at preventing their spread, an estimated 20 million Americans contract a new infection every year. At any one time, it’s thought that 110 million residents in the US has an STD, with Chlamydia being by far the most common.
5. Gun Ownership
Gun ownership is a right protected by the Second Amendment, and you don’t need me to tell you the controversy over this right now. There’s no denying it, though, America is a nation of gun lovers- more so than any other country in the planet- but it’s not the case in every state. 30 % of American adults say they own a gun, and this map shows the percentage of people who live in each state that have at least one. While some numbers may seem obvious, others are quite surprising.
4. Most Remembered States
It’s the dreaded test that every school child faces, to name as many of the states as they can. With 50 to choose from, there are a number of ways to remember them all, if you want you can look up the song!! How many can you remember off the top of your head??
Across America, 12.4 % of residents are classified as living in poverty. While many more may experience financial hardship, this is a definition linked to disposable income and the ability to maintain what is seen as a reasonable standard of living. Living in poverty in the US, means households that live on less than $2 per day before government benefits.
America was built on immigration, and our nation is comprised of an amazing blend of people and cultures from around the world. With so much talk of the issue at the moment, it may surprise you where the majority of immigrants for each state come from. This map shows you in more detail. More than 500,000 immigrants move to the US each year, and they contribute to the country in countless ways.
1. Racial Dot Map
This final map aims to show the geographic distribution, population density, and racial diversity of people in America based upon data collected in the most recent Census. The image is generated by placing one dot on the map for each person, each being colour coded by race. This not only shows where the highest population centres are, but also the cultural make-up of the people who live there.
