In order to identify and honor the cities with the largest share of military personnel in each state, the data science and research team at Insurify, an auto insurance quotes comparison website, turned to its database of over 1.6 million car insurance applications.
When applying for coverage, car owners are asked to indicate whether they or any other driver on their policy are an active service member or a veteran. Given this information, researchers were able to determine which community in each state had the most citizens with military service by population.
