You Are Less Likely To Encounter A Black Friday Fight In Colorado Or Utah
According to the Estately blog, we Colorado and Utah residents are a peace-loving people even on Black Friday.
How did they come to this conclusion? Here's the data they used to determine we are less likely to come to blows over that waffle iron that is 75% off.
- To determine just where it’s most dangerous to participate in Black Friday, we at Estately sought to determine where people are most likely to be participating in Black Friday sales and where people are most prone to violently attacking each other. Our findings come from ranking each state from 1-50 for these two data sets and then averaging the results.
- Facebook users expressing interest in Black Friday sales — (source: Facebook user data)
- Frequency of aggravated assaults (attempts to cause seriously bodily injury purposely) — (source: FBI Uniform Crime Reports—2014)
Colorado is ranked 41st and Utah 43rd compared to all of the other states which apparently will be battlegrounds where people will assault you over the $3 Ernest DVD you've been wanting.
