User submitted facts and corrections:

  • I love how the "Institutionalized Population Percentage" is shown as significantly above average. I would like to add that this is, in part, because we have Mount Pleasant Correctional Facility and Mental Health Institute. However, most of us who live in town are relatively stable (as long as we take our medication).
