Is Louisiana The ‘Virgin Capital’ Of The USA ???
Is Louisiana the virgin headquarters of the United States ? Even more particularly, is the "anything-goes" city of New Orleans, the leading example of that virgin headquarters ? It sounds pretty crazy right ? RIGHT ???
Well, recently, artist R. Luke Dubois joined 21 online dating sites. His goal ?? He wanted to create his own "census of the United States." Dubois took close to 20 million profiles and analyzed "keywords" used in their profiles. He then took the info and created maps showing where those words appeared the most around the country. The breakdown analysis is according to congressional districts in each state, but there isn't much variation between state boundaries.
What would happen if you analyzed the online dating profiles of 19,095,414 single Americans? Based on one man's experiment, you'd discover which places are the kinkiest, loneliest, happiest, most virginal, and more.
One more thing that is important to know before you look at these stats:
The project uses word frequency counting and "word frequency counting doesn't check for context, e.g. the sentence "If I see another happy person I will scream!" counts just as much as "I'm a very happy person."
