Discovery Map International did a US geography IQ survey of Americans and found that nearly half of participants (46%) did not know how many states made up New England and nearly a quarter (22%) couldn’t name the capital of New York state. I find that sad.
To see where you stand, take this 15-question, multiple-choice quiz. It can be played for free here (you can decline the prompt to log in through Facebook and still play) or on Discovery Map International’s Facebook page.
Sadly, I didn’t get a perfect score, but I did score 14 out of 15. I missed “Which state capital is the least populated?” How did you do?
