Mike Simmons created today's map with data from Hoover's. It shows the highest revenue-generating company headquartered in each state, excluding subsidiaries and government agencies (see larger here). Note that we're talking revenue, not profits. If you're confused about any of these selections, there's an explanation on the data-gathering process and a list of included companies here.

The Afternoon Map is a semi-regular feature in which we post maps and infographics. In the afternoon. Semi-regularly. Thanks to Mike at Broadview Networks for sending this one over.
