iNaturalist observations by state/province

I was curious about what areas were over/under-represented in iNaturalist observations, so pulled together some quick data and made the following table for US/Canada.
A few things are interesting:

  • Vermont is ridiculous, but the rest of northern New England and the maritimes do very well too. But southern New England (Connecticut/Rhode Island) and Newfoundland are way down the list
  • The two jurisdictions with lowest level of use are also the two where English is not the primary language
  • My home province of Ontario does very well, with the only large jurisdictions doing better being California and Texas
