IQ tests are unreliable and unstandardized. Also I doubt a significant portion of people have taken tests as such. It would be a blind guess.

Though far from scientific, a California based real estate group analyzed tweets from all 50 states for things like spelling and vocabulary and decided that Massachusetts had the smartest tweets and Mississippi the worst.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure ACT and SAT scores show similar results. I know Mississippi has been the lowest in a number of educational factors for a while now.

Perhaps the smartest state would be the one which had the fewest tweets.

There are two "Peanut Capitals of the World" in Virginia. I pass by one on my way to school everyday. The other one is the next county over. So I feel like Virginia produces the most peanuts. Peanuts are growing right in front of my house as I'm typing!!!

I think when most people think of peanuts in the US, they think of Georgia, which is the top state producer. Look it up and Virginia is about 8th.

Also, can you add most presidents? The Virginians need a topic they can call their own

As long as it's presidents' place of birth, Virginia wins (8). If it's state of primary affiliation, Virginia comes in third place (5), after New York (7), and Ohio (6).

Why are there so many corporations in Delaware?
reply

Mar 31, 2017
(72)
Advantageous state laws for corporations registered there (and you don't have to be based in the state to be registered). Delaware and Nevada are the two I've heard most often.

Definitely should have gotten highest median home prices and highest population over 65! Both seemed totally obvious in retrospect.

Many of these could be answered using a little common sense, although I had no idea about New Jersey. I wanted to smack myself for missing the most homeless answer. It would make sense as it is also the state with the highest home prices. This was a great quiz.

Some of these were very surprising - like Hawaii as the state where the most people are homeless. But I guess if you're homeless, Hawaii is a pretty good place to be.

I thought this was quite easy. I feel being a Canadian probably helped more than being American, as we know a lot of the stereotypes of each state and don't over think it.
