Maps of Seven Deadly Sins in America for 2013

The seven deadly sins are wrath, envy, gluttony, greed, lust, sloth and pride. In what parts of America do we have an epidemic of some of these sins? The guys over at Kansas State University have determined it for us.

Wrath was calculated by comparing the total number of violent crimes — murder, assault and rape — reported to the FBI per capita.

Envy was calculated using the total number of thefts — robbery, burglary, larceny and stolen cars.

Pride, lastly, is most important. The root of all sins, in this study, is the aggregate of all data.
