It is the District of Columbia ....

 

noun

1.
a division of territory, as of a country, state, or county, marked off for administrative, electoral, or other purposes.
 
State has multiple meanings.
 
And two of these states have the highest senior population -- just saying. :shifty:

Don't know, but I'd imagine that they're all in a "state" of dismay at all the broken iPhones! :p

 The District is under the exclusive jurisdiction of the Congress and is therefore not a part of any U.S. state.

 

Rhode Island is the smallest state at 1545 sq/mi and DC is only 68 sq/mi

^ State has multiple meanings.

 

No one said D.C. has statehood.

In the USA, a state has one explicit meaning when it's in the union.....

 

^ State has multiple meanings.

While D.C. isn't technically a state, it isn't a part of any state either, and is often included in studies and statistics as if it were a state.

To argue that it isn't a state when it's included in a statistic of the states really is just toiling in semantics.

Washington D.C. takes the top of that list too :)

Does this account for population percentages or just raw numbers of warranty claims?
