‘All American Music Map’ maps favorite music genres by state (NY is not very punk)

THIS IS WHERE PEOPLE LIKE PUNK (actual interactive map HERE)
All American Music

Check out the ‘All American Music Map’ HERE. How’d they do it?

“We calculated musical taste scores using data from the National Endowment of the Arts, the Bureau of Labor Statistics, and the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis (via the Martin Prosperity Institute) and state level music preferences from Wikipedia. The scores include music genre preference survey data and genre performer concentrations by metro, weighted by that metro’s influence on the music scene. We took the scores for each metro and used a spatial statistics method called nearest neighbors to create the heatmap.”

What were some of their findings? Well, “Punk is also a favorite all along the West Coast and in Nashville, Orlando, and Rochester. For those who prefer something heavier, Seattle, New York, Los Angeles, and Milwaukee are where the most metalheads are located.”, and Las Vegas loves indie, New York is not very punk but Seattle and Austin are. LA loves country but like NY is very diverse. More at…Movoto Real Estate Brokerage (?!?) (via TIME).
