    Is that closing chart adjusted for population?

  2. What do you mean by “adjusted for population”? Thanks!

    Very interesting until I saw the last chart on “Businesses in Danger of Bankruptcy”. Mylan Labs, Textron, Sprint, … . Not sure I understand where that analysis came from.

    re: “Where Are Businesses Closing?” graph: Why can’t they take the numbers and divide them by the per capita state population, and THEN color code them? It’s amateuristic to just say CA bad because it has 174k in failures. CA has the most population by far, so it’s rather likely they have, numerically-speaking, a large number of failures. I give this chart porn a C-, for uninspired.

    for uninspired effort.

  6. ACS says:

    Kind of silly to compare states if the numbers are not adjusted for population.
