Yep. We're "average". And damn proud of it! CNN.com - The most 'representative' state: Wisconsin - Jul 27, 2006
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Looking for a state that is a microcosm of the whole country? You won't find it in Iowa or New Hampshire -- there are 25 states that come closer to average statewide measures on important characteristics such as race and income. In fact, a politician looking for that mythical microcosm -- the most typical state in the country -- should look no further than Wisconsin. So, what makes Wisconsin so special -- or, to put it another way, what makes Wisconsin so average? It is about as close to the average state as you can get on most of the 12 measures included in this study.
