Please forgive me...I know this is way off topic, but thought some of you
hams out there might be a little bit interested in this.  I was messing
around this afternoon and calculated the percentage of per capita hams are
each state in the USA and found a couple of interesting international
numbers, as well.  Population estimates come from
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_U.S._states_and_territories_by_population#cite_note-censusnote-6
and are for 1 July 2017.  FCC license totals come from the www.arrl.org
site here:  http://www.arrl.org/fcc-license-counts and are as current as
yesterday.

Been feeling well enough to sit today, so I have been looking at per capita
percentages of ham operators around the world.  Country per capita hams are:

1.  Japan
2.  Slovenia
3.  Taiwan
4.  South Korea
5.  Thailand

Sheer numbers, most hams in the world:

1.  United States
2.  Japan
3.  Thailand
4.  Germany
5.  Canada

Data taken from:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amateur_radio_operator.
Using some population sites for the US and the ARRL site to get the total
number of hams in the US (and using Jimmy to figure out the blasted math in
Excel!), I came up with a %-age of hams per state in the US, which I'm
attaching.

It's interesting to see the highest per capita hams in which states.  Most
of the states are .37% and down.  Utah is the highest with .56%.  Next
highest is Idaho with .50%, Alaska with .48%, Oregon, .47%, Washington,
.45%, New Hampshire, .41%, and the rest under .37%.  The lowest are DC,
Puerto Rico, Louisiana, New York, New Jersey, Illinois.
