The Utah birth rate - Mormons are plotting to take over. Just give it 50 years, they're playing the long game

But how does Utah miss being one of the most religious states?

Have you ever been to Louisiana? They don't have towns there. They call them PARISHES.

Not too sure how to respond to stg, but a parish is a county, not a town, and it doesn't mean everyone living there is a devout christian.

Yeah, parish is just a relic of Louisiana's former status as a French colony. There's no meaningful distinction other than terminology as far as I know between county and parish, and certainly not a religious one. But some of Louisiana's demographic factors, such as the high black population, low income, and location in the South should give you some clues as to why it's so religious.

Wouldnt Boston make it as one of most populated capitals? Is 'more average precipitation' grammatically correct?

Phoenix, Austin, Indianapolis, Columbus, and Denver all beat out Boston in terms of population of the city proper.

For some reason, I found this quiz much harder than the "least" superlative quiz.

With so few people, traffic fatalities % go way up everytime someone dies. Also, how could you live out in the frontier without a gun? The census counts legal gun ownership, not illegal. If we could find out the illegal gun ownership then you would not want to go to any big cities.

The US Census Bureau listed Alaska as #1 for Native American percentage in 2015, with Oklahoma at #2 (13.6%), ahead of New Mexico on 11.8%.

That's funny - those were my first two guesses. I don't know how the US collects its ethnographic census data. Is it possible a distinction is made between "American Indian" and "Inuit"? Not that this should matter given the term "Native Americans", but it could trip a person up. (And not that this would have anything to do with any distinctions between Oklahoma and New Mexico.)

"Most average precipitation" sounds like the state with precipitation that's closest to the median. I presume you mean "highest average precipitation"?

Great quiz -- got it done with just 0:02 to spare. I like quizzes like this where educated guessing comes into play, makes it more interesting than some quizzes where you either know it or you don't and you'll never figure it out, e.g. world capitals.
