Most of us have a preconceived view that some states are ‘better’ than others and more suitable for people wishing to experience a prepared lifestyle. The American Redoubt region in particular seems to be considered by many as an ideal region, but that contains a handful of states and many counties and regions.
Here’s a rather simplistic webpage that allows you to answer seven questions with yes/no/not applicable as answers, and to select a possible state you are considering living within. From that limited data, it then reports the five towns which have their population believed to most closely match your own opinions.
The information comes from, ironically enough, a company that specializes in helping Democratic causes and campaigns.
Needless to say, there’s a great deal more to consider than the seven yes/no/don’t care questions asked by this program, but it is interesting to see where the resulting clusters of people ‘most like you’ end up being located within your preferred states.
For example, we’d have expected our answers to suggest moving to northern Idaho but the townships returned were all in southern Idaho. In Montana, there was a preference for eastern Montana whereas we’d otherwise look to north/western Montana.
There’s of course another use for this web page/mapping. Put in the opposite answers and see the places in your preferred state you might wish to avoid!
