Awesome thread. I've been looking for that Australian overlay for years.

SOME STATES THAT GET THEIR BORDER FUDGED BY CARELESS CARTOGRAPHERS:

ALASKA - Aluetian Islands are frequently left off and misspelled.
ARKANSAS - Has two indentions: One in the northeast corner and one in the southwest.
DELAWARE - Is this really a state?
FLORIDA - That little part that juts up into Georgia a bit.
GEORGIA - See above
HAWAII - Oahu and three other little circles does not make a map of Hawaii.
IOWA - Has a sizable bulge on the eastern side.
MISSOURI - don't forget the boot heel!

MINNESOTA - That little tic of a state park that you can only get to via Canada.
NEVADA - Has six sides, not four.
NEW MEXICO - The panhandle down near El Paso.
NEW YORK - Long Island, surprisingly enough. It's like the Tasmania of the Empire State.
SOUTH DAKOTA - Not a perfect rectangle, thanks to the Missouri River.
WEST VIRGINIA - Wheeling is not in Ohio.
WISCONSIN - Does not have an upper peninsula.

Perhaps, though in that case the east coast would be glowing much more as well. Maybe also Tennessee soil is just super good for digging + good amount of empty space

"Be careful of skidding through Mianus, it's slippery"

"Mianus really needs to get plowed" is the appropriate reaction to this weather iirc

How are all those state university systems considered "private employers"?

Brad C., Sunday, 25 November 2018 19:36 (two weeks ago) Permalink

I don't think this answers Brad's question, but

For the purposes of our analysis, we treated some state government employers like public universities as independent organizations, in keeping with how states frequently identify and compare company headcounts. Military bases were excluded from the list. In many cases, employee counts for the various colleges, laboratories, and medical centers falling under a single university system were combined. This was because these systems frequently attribute employees from the university and medical centers together. However, when a spokesperson from the medical centers or universities identified the organizations as distinct employers, they were counted separately.
