How We Determined The Cheaters In North Dakota
Want to know who is attempting to cheat? Go directly to the source of people actively trying to cheat — Ashley Madison users.
We used the Ashley Madison database to count how many accounts were created in each zip code. We are saying “accounts” and not “people” because it is possible to create dummy accounts assigned to a city or to have multiple accounts. However, we believe the number of accounts to be a solid proxy for the number of people trying to cheat.
We then matched each zip code to its corresponding city in North Dakota. If a zip code falls into more than one city, the accounts registered in that zip code were applied to each city.
Finally, we used an estimate for the population of the zip codes to identify the number of cheaters per capita.
After identifying the number of cheaters per capita in a city, we ranked each place from highest number of cheaters per capita to lowest. The place with the most cheaters per capita “earned” the title of cheating central of North Dakota.
Note: We only looked at cities with more than 2,000 people.
