Wikipedia Edits Reveal America's "Data Deserts" "For many, the concept of the “data revolution” conjures up images of online transactions, genomic medical data, and ubiquitous sensor networks. But user-generated data sets, such as social media updates, Flickr photos, and blog posts, are a major part of the data revolution as well. Internet users post 100 hours of video to YouTube every minute, and tweet around 600 million times a day. These data sets reflect the lived experiences of millions of individuals, and collectively provide valuable information about many different communities."

Happy Salary by State

Here Is The Salary At Which Money Won't Make you Any Happier In Each State "Money can only buy happiness up to a point. But just how much you need to get to that threshold really depends on where you live, according to a new analysis by Doug Short, vice president of research at investment group Advisor Perspectives."

Food by State

Every State in the USA, Ranked By Its Food and Drink "During America Week, a parlor game emerged among our editors, in which we discussed what state we'd want to eat and drink in for the rest of our lives if we couldn't move anywhere else. And, in order to prove each other wrong, we began to research, then really research, and then began to get deep into some weird food forums, and, at the end of it all, we realized we needed to do the most research possible and turn this into a story."

Marijuana by State

Pot luck "CALL it reefer madness. On July 8th Washington became the second state after Colorado to offer recreational pot-smokers a chance to buy weed legally at a local store. Marijuana is still illegal in most of America. But there are substantial activities towards more liberal policies. In 23 states the medicinal use of marijuana is allowed and more states are considering legalisation. Oregon and Alaska will vote on legalisation in November; Floridians will decide on permitting medical use. President Barack Obama has chosen to take a hand’s-off approach to the issue of legalisation in Washington and Colorado. Yet if a drug hawk were to succeed President Obama in 2016, a clampdown on pot could well be revived."

Minimum Wage by State

New Analysis Debunks Claim That A Higher Minimum Wage Kills Job Growth "A higher minimum wage doesn't have to kill jobs. The 13 U.S. states that increased their minimum wages on January 1 saw higher employment growth, on average, than the states where the minimum wage didn't change, according to an analysis by the Center for Economic Policy Research, a progressive think tank."

States With the Most Gun Violence

There were more than 700 gun-related deaths — including homicide, suicide, and accidents — in South Carolina in 2011, or 14.8 per 100,000 residents when adjusted for age. Overall crime rates were also particularly high in South Carolina. More than 570 violent crimes were committed per 100,000 people in South Carolina during 2011, behind only to Alaska and Tennessee. That year, there were 5.5 firearms related homicides per 100,000 residents in South Carolina, up slightly from the year before and more than in all but three other states. Firearm-related crimes are usually committed many years after the purchase of the associated weapon. In South Carolina, however, nearly 28% of crimes occurred within two years of the gun’s registration, among the higher rates in the nation for crimes committed so shortly after their purchase.

Congrats, America. You have less economic opportunity than you did in 1970

"Americans today have more social and educational opportunity than they did 40 years ago -- but they have less economic opportunity, thanks to a bruising recession and the alarming economic trends that preceded it."
