The Most Disproportionately Popular Store in Each State

Alvin Ward

Does it seem like there are an unusual amount of brewing supply stores or car battery stores or billiards stores where you live? Maybe you're right. Today's map, from Yelp and the Huffington Post's Alissa Scheller, looks at stores that are unusually popular in each state:

"Yelp calculated the percentage of a given type of business relative to the total number of business listings in that state. Then, it compared those percentages with each type of store's representation nationwide."

You can see each state's top ten here (just scroll down a bit).

The Afternoon Map is a semi-regular feature in which we post maps and infographics. In the afternoon. Semi-regularly. Thanks to Yelp and The Huffington Post for this one.
