Most FIRST teams per capita

I while ago, I was curious about which state really has the most FRC teams per capita. We all know California, Michigan, and New York all have tons of teams, but who really has the most? Before we all go wild trying to create new teams for Dean's homework, we must first know where to create them. So, here is a list of all 50 states + Puerto Rico + Washington D.C. with the teams per capita. (I used 2004 U.S. Census data for state populations)

Ranked in order from most teams per capita to least:

Ranking / State / Teams Per Capita* (in thousands)

1. New Hampshire - 54.1
2. North Dakota - 105. 7
3. Michigan - 108.7
4. Connecticut - 125.1
5. Virginia - 135.6
6. Alaska - 163.9
7. Washington D.C. - 177.8
8. South Carolina - 182.5
9. Montana - 185.4
10. New Jersey - 189.1
11. Colorado - 209.2
12. New York - 216.0
13. Massachusetts - 221.3
14. Kansas - 248.7
15. Oregon - 256.8
16. South Dakota - 256.9
17. Nevada - 291.9
18. Indiana - 297.0
19. Pennsylvania - 302.6
20. Hawaii - 315.7
21. Maine - 329.3
22. Arizona - 337.9
23. Ohio - 347.2
24. Rhode Island - 360.2
25. California - 362.6
26. Wisconsin - 367.3
27. Georgia - 367.9
28. Maryland - 397.0
29. Florida - 404.6
30. Missouri - 411.0
31. Washington - 413.6
32. Delaware - 415.2
33. Wyoming - 506.5
34. Mississippi - 580.6
35. West Virginia - 605.2
36. Vermont - 621.4
37. Idaho - 696.6
38. Oklahoma - 704.7
39. Alabama - 755.0
NATIONAL AVERAGE: 770.7
40. Texas - 803.2
41. Louisiana - 903.2
42. New Mexico - 951.6
43. Illinois - 978.0
44. North Carolina - 1067.7
45. Arkansas - 1376.3
46. Iowa - 1477.2
47. Utah - 2389.0
48. Tennessee - 2950.5
49. Puerto Rico - 3894.9
50. Kentucky - 4145.9
51. Minnesota - 5101.0
52. Nebraska - has no teams

*The teams per capita represents the number of people in each state/area per each FIRST team.

What this data means:
The higher a particular state is on the list, the more teams is has, per its population. The lower a particular state is on this list, is the less teams per capita it has. These are the states where we should be trying hard to get new FIRST teams. Although it is great that states like California have almost a hundred teams, or New Hampshire to have to most teams per capita, it is states like Minnesota and Nebraska that need more teams.

FYI: If every state had as many teams per capita as New Hampshire does, then the number of FRC teams would jump five-fold; there would be 5497 teams in the United States!

Kudos to the top states on a job well done for spreading FIRST! For all the rest - what are ya waiting for? Let's do our homework and spread FIRST!
