How We Measured Patriotism In The Best Country On Earth


To find out how patriotic each state was, we first made a list of criteria that we considered to be pretty indicative of proud Americans. Those criteria were: (and how Hawaii ranks)

  • National Historic Landmarks per Capita  --8
  • Veterans per Capita --14
  • Money Spent to Fund Veterans  --40
  • Percent of Residents That Voted in the Last Presidential Election --50
  • People Who Google For American Flags to buy  --49
  • People Who List America as an Interest on Facebook  --29

(Hawaii overall rank 46th)

We got this data from sources including the 2012 U.S. Census, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, Google Trends, Facebook, and Wikipedia.

We then ranked each state from one to 50 in each category, with one being the best possible score. We then averaged those scores into one Big Deal Score, with a lower score indicating greater patriotism.

(Hawaii score 31.67)

And Texas, before you panic and run out to buy a third American flag, you guys ranked No. 14, so you’re still very patriotic and we salute you.

For now, let’s take a look at the states that did make our top 10, starting with our America-loving winner: South Carolina.
