Do you want to be a completely AVERAGE American, living in an average place, having an average life, with other average people?  Apparently, you belong in Illinois.

 

A new study figured out the most AVERAGE states, based on how close they are statistically to the national averages for things like marriage, children, income, commutes, racial breakdowns, and jobs.

 

Illinois was easily the most NORMAL state in the country.

 

There's a city in Illinois called Normal, by the way. So I guess that's the most normal city in the country on several levels now.

 

The rest of the top 10 are: Washington, Oregon, North Carolina, Indiana, Arizona, Delaware, Missouri, Ohio, and Georgia.

 

They didn't figure out the LEAST average states in the country. (Business Insider)
