a/k/a Linear Fun #3: Driving Across America
Plot total drivers vs. total population (using this table) for every state in the US and you get this graph:
Okay, that dot that’s below the line? That’s New York. That one’s easy. Fewer licensed drivers than you’d expect for the population ’cause only cabbies drive there or something.
But that dot that’s above the line? That’s Florida, and me and my classes will be damned if we can figure out why they’ve got more than their fair share of drivers.
Anybody got anything for us on that?
