Our concept is simple. We provide you with as many facts about states as we can find and you explore the facts using our intuitive tools. You can look at the statistics through political eyes and correlate the data by the redness or blueness of a state. What we think is special is that you determine how red states or blue states are defined. You can select what percentage of elections (presidential, senatorial, and for the House of Representatives) must be cast as a Republican (Red) or Democrat (Blue) for a state to turn color. All other states will be counted as purple.
Once you’ve set the map, then the fun begins. Pick a statistic like divorce rate by state and see whether the blue states or red states are in greater matrimonial distress.
Since political affiliations are one way to view the country we also provide a cross correlation tool allowing you to explore any statistic databased with any other statistic we have stored. We hope to continually expand the breadth and depth of our state based statistics. So please check back often.
This site is under active construction. We are mostly functional with the basic operations, a correlation feature and 166 sets of state statistics with almost 8,500 individual facts. We are in the process of double checking our data and then we plan to add many more over the coming weeks. Last updated 12/10/2012.
