Mapping the 7 Deadly Sins

In the most recent Wired Magazine Kristina Shevory writes about Mapping the 7 Deadly Sins. The maps of sin are created by plotting per-capita stats on things like theft (envy) and STDs (lust). The infographics were produced by a team of the Kansas State University Geography Department. Unfortunately we were unable to find further information about the data sources nor the design decisions behind the visualizations.

    This is very interesting. But I too would like to know the origins of the data used.

    At first glance there appears to be correlation: if I want to find kind, patient and monogamous people the Midwest seems appealing. :)
