26-year-olds in America. Where do they live?



I'm guessing the percentage living with parents would be even higher in Japan, but that's always been more common here. In America it's more of a recent trend.

Maybe there aren't any households without guns in Wyoming? I expect there must be a few but perhaps not enough for a statistically significant sample.

I took the liberty to RTFA.
The opposite is true for voters who said they did not live in a home with a gun. In all but one state that could be measured, voters overwhelmingly preferred Hillary Clinton. (The exception was West Virginia; not enough data existed for Wyoming.)[/quote.]

They have a tiny population (~500k) so they just didn't happen to call anyone that actually lived there.

Of course that doesn't account for popular variants, for example Adolphe, Adolf, etc 8)

Ironically, the source of the graph is from Bo Mcready@ bobknowsdata, the first name on the list.

A lot of those are diminutive forms of real names. Like Bob, ed, Pat, Bert, Phil, and Dick are hypocorisms of Robert, Edward, Berton, Phillip, and Penis.

Actual origin is a rhyming slang euphemism "Uncle Dick".

The diagonal band with high bar concentrations looks somewhat like the distribution of -ac/-at place names endings:

Which are of Celtic origin (from -acum). Perhaps there are more Celtic toponymy traces I'm not aware of which would make for a better overall fit? Pure speculation. :mrgreen:

Which wouldn't surprise you if you've ever been to Wisconsin. The campgrounds there have bars.
