DERoss (1919496) writes "The National Science Foundation has publish a research paper with the subject title, which may be found at http://www.nsf.gov/statistics/infbrief/nsf13330/. The lead paragraph contains the sentence "The three most populous states—California, Texas, and New York—together accounted for more than one-fourth of all S&E employment in the United States."

According to the 2010 census, however, those three states also contain more than one-fourth (26.5%) percent of the U.S. population. In other words, there is NO concentration beyond how the general population is concentrated."

Sorry! There are no comments related to the filter you selected.

Take a look at the last two columns of table 1. I would hardly call 1.7% of the workforce in Mississippi versus 6.4% of the workforce in Massachusetts (and nearly 11% in DC) "no concentration". The hotspots aren't the three most populous states, though: Map [choropleth.us]
