Bieber Fever Geography: West Virginia = the Beliebers State, Washington = the Haters State, Survey Says


A real estate website Estately released its findings on which U.S. states and Canadian provinces/territories have the highest rates of Justin Bieber fans.

Using Facebook data,  they learned West Virginia as the belieber’s state because they have “full-blown Bieber Fever”, with a U.S. record 9.41% admitting they love Justin and by far the highest percentage of Bieber fans in the US.

On the other hand, Washington state has the fewest Justin supporters, with only 6.82 percent of Facebook users listing Justin Bieber as an interest in their profile.

via the Estately blog:

Families have a lot to consider when shopping for a home: quality of schools, proximity to work, crime rate, and obviously the severity of Bieber Fever in the area. Basically, what are the odds a member of your family will fall under the spell of this generation’s most despicable pop culture monster—Justin Bieber?

Estately have researched this modern musical menace by measuring the percentage of Justin Bieber fans in each U.S. State and Canadian Province. We determined this by collecting Facebook user data showing which state had the most users per capita that listed the Canadian pop star as an interest. The results were deeply troubling. Here are some key findings…

1. Washington state is by far the safest place to wait out the Bieber epidemic. Not only does the Evergreen State have the lowest percentage of Bieber fans (6.82%), but it’s also home to Tenino High School, which once blasted Justin Bieber over the loud speakers between classes until students raised $500 for orphans in Ghana.

2. West Virginia is in the grips of full-blown Bieber Fever, with a U.S. record 9.41% admitting they like the pop star. Rhode Island (9.33%), Wisconsin (9.33%) and Alabama (9.23%) should also be ashamed of themselves.

3. The safest states to avoid member of #TeamBieber are in the Pacific Northwest, Mountain West, and Northeast. Great states largely devoid of Bieber fandom are Oregon, Vermont, and Virginia.

4. With the exception of British Columbia, Canada’s enthusiasm for their own little locally-produced Prince of Pop is shockingly high, particularly in the more remote and isolated provinces and territories. Someone should start a campaign for iTunes to donate free downloads of non-Bieber music to residents in Nunavut, Saskatchewan, and the Northwest Territories.

Results for all U.S. states ranked from most Bieber fans to least.

Results for all Canadian provinces and territories ranked from most Bieber fans to least.

    Obviously they don’t count every person in those places; for example, they they count me in NYC? so they are just estimates. Anyway if there are Bieber hating places, Justin could avoid them in concerts or donations.

    It’s obvious how reveliant Justin is as a global megastar: of all of the celebrities’ in the world a real estate blog Estately had to go out of their normal business operations to make a geography map of Justin Bieber fever. It’s evident that they have Bieber fever as well.
