Which State is Leading The Nation in Electric Vehicles?

Published

on

Which U.S. state would you guess has the most electric vehicles? If you said California, you’d be right! Not only does California have the most electric vehicles overall due to its large population, but California was also found to have the highest rate of electric vehicles on a per capita basis. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, the total number of electric vehicle registrations in California reached a high of 425,300. This amounts to a rate of 1,083.9 registrations for every 100,000 people that live in the state. California’s high rate of electric vehicles may be due to the state releasing a plan to phase out gas-powered cars by 2035 to try and improve air quality.

On the flip side, which state in the U.S. has the lowest rate of electric vehicles on the roads? Mississippi’s low number of electric vehicle registrations puts it at the bottom of the list. Only 780 electric vehicles have been registered in the state of Mississippi, leading to a low rate of just 26.34 electric vehicle registrations for every 100,000 people. How many electric vehicles are on the road in all of the other U.S. states? Learn more with this chart that was created by the people at AlansFactoryOutlet.com and ranks all fifty states based on the number of electric vehicles that have been registered per 100,000 residents. Read on to see which states are leading the nation when it comes to driving electric vehicles, and which states still have a long way to go.

To put things into perspective, consider that the global average cost of 1 GB of data is $4.07. Compare that to the most expensive country, Equatorial Guinea, where people pay an average of $49.67 for 1 GB! Israel has the least expensive data in the world at just $.05 per 1 GB. What can you do with 1 GB of data? According to MakeUseOf.com, 1 GB of data equals five hours of mobile web browsing, 30 minutes of HD video streaming, five hours of mobile gaming, and 18 hours of music streaming. That means in the most expensive country, it could cost around $200 just to watch a movie on your phone! In Israel, you could watch it for $.20. Overall, this chart is effective at conveying mobile data prices around the world in a quick and compelling way. How much do you pay for mobile data and where do you live?

Which Cities Truly Never Sleep? This Chart Shows the Cities With the Most Night Workers

Published

on

The world never truly sleeps – humans are working hard around the clock trying to make a living, provide for their families, afford their hobbies, or just make it to the next meal. While many of us are blissfully sinking into our pillows, night shift workers are just beginning their “day” of work. A typical night shift, or third shift, involves working from 11:00 PM to 7:00 AM or 5 PM to 2 AM. So where are these night workers most abundant? NapLab has created a chart exploring the U.S. cities with the most people working night jobs. Before you scroll down, take a guess at the top city. I did my first time discovering it – I’ll share my answer below!

My initial guess was Detroit, Michigan. I have never been, but something about it just oozes “burning the midnight oil”. What was your guess? Comment below! In reality, the top city with the most night workers is Las Vegas, Nevada, which actually makes absolute sense considering its reputation for a dazzling, chaotic and never-ending nightlife. 16.53% of Vegas’ workforce works the night shift! After all, you would never expect a city with the monikers “Sin City”, “Neon Capital of the World”, “Entertainment Capital of the World” and “City of Light” to become a quiet little hamlet once the sun sets. I felt a little better when I discovered that my guess, Detroit, ranks 28th with 11.93% of the workforce manning the night shift.

Overall, I appreciate the overall feel of the chart – the colors convey the topic exceptionally, and the header is lovely and eye-catching. I have never seen this data visualized before, so I appreciate the opportunity to learn something new about the culture and economy of America.

The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted prices and expenses across the board. From groceries to living costs, most people are feeling a hit to their wallets. Housing costs in particular have been rising exponentially. Where in the United States have they been rising the most?

The following visualization shows where in the U.S. home prices have increased the most since the pandemic. The graphic utilizes a pin map at the top to indicate where each of the cities are located, and then uses a column range chart to depict the change in home prices between January 2020 and July 2022.

These are the cities that have seen the biggest increase in home prices since the beginning of the pandemic in 2020:

  1. Cape Coral, FL: 85.96%
  2. Round Rock, TX: 80.94%
  3. St. Petersburg, FL: 76.92%
  4. Port St. Lucie, FL: 72.88%
  5. Clearwater, FL: 71.09%
  6. Surprise, AZ: 69.93%
  7. Nampa, ID: 69.69%
  8. Tampa, FL: 69.35%
  9. Austin, TX: 69.05%
  10. Gilbert, AZ: 68.54%

Unsurprisingly, since many employees are now allowed to work from home, warmer locations have become popular places for relocation. This could play a part in why home prices are increasing in states like Florida and Arizona.

On the flip side, these are the cities where home prices have risen the least since the pandemic:

  1. Odessa, TX: -1.98%
  2. Midland, TX: 6.27%
  3. Washington, DC: 10.47%
  4. San Francisco, CA: 11.27%
  5. Las Cruces, NM: 11.35%
  6. New York, NY: 12.95%
  7. Laredo, TX: 15.85%
  8. Boston, MA: 15.91%
  9. Minneapolis, MN: 16.72%
  10. Shreveport, LA: 16.96%

Odessa, TX is the only place where home prices have decreased. Major cities like San Francisco, New York City, and Boston have also experienced low levels of home price increases, likely due to many people leaving large cities during the pandemic.

Which city on the list is most surprising to you?
