Each state has at least one thing that they have more of than the rest of the country. Do you know what New York has more of?

A pretty cool article was posted by "Estately," that found what each state had more of than any other state. Answers ranged from the most people who are NOT divorced (which was in New Jersey) to the state with the most turkeys (which, believe it or not, is Minnesota). With answers like that, it's pretty hard to guess what New York has the most of - It could be anything!

Well, here's a hint: New York has more people who have this career, compared to the rest of the United States. Take a moment and think about it - Do you think you know what it is?

Alright, that's enough guessing. We're sure you're ready for the answer...

It's lawyers. New York has more lawyers than any other state. According to Estately,

Would America change the way it funds education if it knew that New York’s highest spending per pupil on elementary-secondary school students somehow would lead to the most lawyers per capita—8.5 per 1,000?

So if you know a lot of lawyers (or hear a lot of their commercials on the radio and TV), you now know why - There's a lot of them.

It may not be the answer you were hoping for, but it's better than being known for having the most snake bites (like North Carolina) or the most car accidents because of deer (like West Virginia). You can see the full list of what each state has more of compared to the rest of the United States here.
