These maps, from a study by Thomas Vought and colleagues at Kansas State University, use various metrics to purportedly show which regions of the US are more ‘sinful’ than others. The metrics are:

Gluttony: fast food restaurants per capita.

Greed: A comparison of average incomes with percent of population below poverty line (basically a measure of inequality).

Envy: thefts per capita.

Lust: sexually transmitted diseases reported per capita.

Sloth: a comparison of employment rate and per capita spending on arts, entertainment, and recreation (the strangest metric, in my opinion).

Wrath: violent crimes (murder, assault, rape) per capita.

Pride: an aggregate of all six of the other metrics.

    Florida, this is why we have a disproportionate sense of entitlement. But at least we actually are better than everyone.
