A chart made from the leaked Ashley Madison data reveals which states in the US like to cheat the most

Nathan McAlone

Since the leak of hacked data from extramarital dating site Ashley Madison, many revelations have come out about the world's cheating habits.

We learned that hundreds of Ashley Madison subscribers were probably US government employees, and that a whopping 15,000 of the email addresses were linked to either the military or the government.

But some of the most interesting pieces of data come from examining the differences between regions. We already looked at what cities around the world had the most cheaters, but now data scientist Jake Popham has examined which states in the United States like to cheat the most.

This graph shows each US state organized by how many dollars it spends on Ashley Madison per capita. Alabama leads the charge, along with Colorado and Washington, D.C. (which was included in the data with the states).

But as Richard Westmoreland pointed out on Twitter, Alabama's ranking could be artificially high because of its position as the first state in the drop-down menu. At the bottom are West Virginia, Mississippi, and Idaho.

Here is the full list:
