Which States Love the 80’s the Most

Which States Love the 80s the Most? - 80swerethebest.com

Ever wonder which states had the most “retromania”? Yeah, so did we. A follow on Twitter passed us a link to an article written by estately.com, the online estate shopping website. The post, labeled “Which U.S. States Most Love the 1980’s?” , mined data from Facebook to understand which states had the highest sentiments towards 80’s singers, concepts, and movies. The conclusion? People in Kentucky love the 80’s, while Hawaii loathes it. Interestingly enough, love for the greatest decade ever was concentrated in the Midwest & Appalachian states, and more or less disdain for the 80’s was proportional to how far west one lived. Yet what about more than overall apathy for the decade?

Estately also compiled heatmaps of preference to 4 of the top singers (Madonna, Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston, and Van Halen) during the 80’s as well, and again a noticeable correlation arose:

The King of Pop conquered the northeast, the Voice took home the south, the Material girl won the west, and Eddie claimed the rest. It is important to remember that this was not a survey or study, rather data exploration based on user defined preferences within Facebook.

Turns out that even though we vary on how much and which singers, movies, and entertainers were the greatest, everyone could agree that truly the 80’s were the best.
