High School Quiz Bowl Rankings and Fun With Populations – March 5th

I’ve recalculated the adjustments for difficulty (I hope to post them later this week). I also played around with some population based data just to take a look at some things.

In lieu of listing every single move in/out of the rankings, here’s another state-by-state breakdown of how many teams are in the top 200.

30 teams: California
16 teams: Illinois
14 teams: Georgia, Texas
11 teams: Ohio
10 teams: Kentucky, New Jersey, Tennessee
9 teams: Pennsylvania, Virginia
8 teams: North Carolina
7 teams: Maryland
6 teams: Missouri, New York
4 teams: Massachusetts, Michigan
3 teams: Alabama, Florida, Minnesota
2 teams: Arizona, Connecticut, District of Columbia, Delaware, Indiana, Louisiana, Oklahoma, Ontario, South Carolina
1 team: Iowa, Oregon, Singapore, West Virginia, Wisconsin

And population per ranked team (all population figures pulled from Wikipedia):

District of Columbia: 323,224.5 people per ranked team
Kentucky: 439,529.5
Delaware: 458,546
Tennessee: 649,597.8
Georgia: 713,726.2
Illinois: 805,133.4
Maryland: 846,973.4
New Jersey: 889,933.9
Virginia: 917,822.8
Missouri: 1,007,361.8
Ohio: 1,051,891.6
North Carolina: 1,231,007.5
California: 1,277,750.7
Pennsylvania: 1,419,331.2
Alabama: 1,611,240.7
Massachusetts: 1,673,206
Connecticut: 1,798,040
Minnesota: 1,806,793.3
West Virginia: 1,854,304
Texas: 1,889,156.6
Oklahoma: 1,925,284
Louisiana: 2,312,735
South Carolina: 2,387,419.5
Michigan: 2,473,905.5
Iowa: 3,090,416
New York: 3,275,187.8
Indiana: 3,285,451
Arizona: 3,313,312
Oregon: 3,930,065
Singapore: 5,399,200
Wisconsin: 5,742,713
Ontario: 6,425,910.5
Florida: 6,517,620

And, if everything was perfectly proportional, here’s how the top 200 would work out for the 50 states (so, no DC or foreign locales; postal abbreviations used for convenience; rounded up as appropriate):

24 teams: CA
17 teams: TX
12 teams: FL, NY
8 teams: IL, PA
7 teams: OH
6 teams: GA, MI, NC, NJ
5 teams: VA
4 teams: WA, MA, AZ, IN, TN, MO, MD, WI
3 teams: MN, CO, AL, SC, LA, KY
2 teams: OR, OK, CT, IA, MS, AR, UT, KS, NV
1 team: NM, NE, WV, ID, HI, ME, NH, RI, MT, DE, SD
<0.5 teams: AK, ND, VT, WY
