Frankinbeans: in statistics, the size of the population doesn't really matter when considering sample size. A sample of 293 is sufficient, regardless of the size of the population. However, the problem here isn't the 293; it's the 5. A sample size of 5 has a HUGE margin of error, which makes the state-by-state ratings completely meaningless. I can't believe someone took the time to create a graphic for such worthless data.

An average of five per state is totally useless, to say nothing of the fact that self-rating on these complex issues is doubly totally useless. Making it at least 250% useless by my totally useless count.
