Map shows passport ownership by state

Have you ever heard the statistic that only 10% of Americans have a passport? Well, it turns out that that's a bunch of crap. Fueled by data taken straight from the government's records at data.gov, C.G.P Grey compiled the actual number of passport ownership by state throughout the entire United States. Surprisingly, his findings suggest that over 45% of Americans have passports with residents of New Jersey having the highest percentage at 68%. The state with the lowest percentage of passports? Mississippi. Check out the rest of the statistics in Grey's handy infographic:
