Nope, think more along the lines of, well, something that is mostly comprised of unemployed people.

I don't know if anyone will get this one:



I'll start giving hints tomorrow.

First hint: It is based on 1912, and represents a really odd voting pattern.  I would look at South Dakota and Oklahoma for good results (big hint there)

Lowest quintile has a plurality of...whites (blue) / blacks (black) / hispanics (green) / asians (yellow) ?

Figured it was race due to Hawaii's weird color (and that's what inspired my map).

This gets the states rights, but the percentages wrong (in certain states).

Blue has Roosevelt, All the Minor Parties, and 3/8 of Wilson's vote.

Red has Taft and 5/8 of Wilson's vote.

Close enough.

Taft (Red) = Taft + 60% Wilson + Prohibition
Roosevelt (Blue) = Roosevelt + 40% Wilson + Socialist

This one might be difficult. Colors are arbitrary. Hawaii shouldn't be green- pretend it's yellow or something.

edit- and Arizona should only be >40% blue

I'll go ahead and answer mine. It's percentage of race for prison population. It's quite an interesting map. I got the data off of www.thearda.com - but their data seems to count hispanics as whites (at least in some states), just as the census does.

These maps are related.  Should be fairly easy.

Map 2-How each state's least populated county voted in 2004.

Got it.

I found the following things interesting:

1. Kerry won the most and least populated counties in many Southern states; the region where he did terribly in general.  This is apparently a combination of liberal urban pockets and residual black communities in the rural areas.

2. New Hampshire's most populous county voted Republican, while the least populated county voted Democratic.  Not sure what to make of that.

3. Despite being the closest swing state, both Wisconsin's most and least populated counties voted Democratic by huge margins.

First one: every county in blue states went for Bush.

Second one: every county in red states went for Kerry.

Close, but not quite.  Think about the percentages too.

Well you got them mixed up, but you're close enough.  The first map shows Kerry's best counties, while the second shows Bush's best counties.

Is Hawaii grey in the second map because of mistake, no information available, or because it should properly be a third color?

Ooh, you're good. Wink

The first map shows how 18-29 year olds voted, and the second shows how 60+ year olds voted.  Source: CNN exit poll.


Is Hawaii grey in the second map because of mistake, no information available, or because it should properly be a third color?

The same poll showed a 50-50 split among the 60+ group in Hawaii.

------

Some interesting things to note:

1. Kerry won the elderly group in Maine, Montana and New Mexico, while Bush won the young group in the same states.  These are the only states to break from the expected norm.  I wouldn't mind knowing why.

2. Kerry did surprisingly well among Mississippi young voters, but nowhere near as well anywhere else in the Deep South.

3. Kerry won both demographic groups in the swing states of Wisconsin, Iowa, New Hampshire, Michigan and Arkansas.

That's because he won every demographic in between 30 and 60, and there were more of them. Wink
