the only thing i'm aware of that is proven to correlate with "size" across human population, is race.

so if Mississippi, Louisiana, SC, Alabama, et cetera, aren't at the top of the list, then I don't see how they could be using adequate data. It doesn't help that this is a no-name company, with no explanation of the methodology.

I'm not aware that this has actually been "proven", just anecdotally.

This is just another case of manipulating statistics to make a case for whatever it is the publisher wishes to convey.

First of all . . . not everyone uses condoms.

And statistics show that over 500,000 vasectomies are performed annually in the USA. That's a whole lot of guys who may be in committed relationships and aren't using condoms.

So . . . just b/c folks are purchasing condoms, that doesnt mean they are the only folks having sex, lol.

The chart is totally worthless . . . the only thing it might be helpful in would be for vendors to decide what size of condoms they may need to stock based on past sales.

Actually, NC is not at the top of that chart.

Latest stats, from 2006:

New Mexico had the highest teenage pregnancy rate (93 per 1,000), followed by Nevada, Arizona, Texas and Mississippi. The lowest rates were in New Hampshire (33), Vermont, Maine,Minnesota and North Dakota.

Also:

Teenage abortion rates were highest in New York (41 per 1,000), New Jersey, Nevada, Delaware and Connecticut.

One could infer that the NE had the most unwanted teenaged pregnancies, as they got the most abortions per 1000.

Yeah, but NC is number 9 in teen pregancy and number 42 based on condom sales. Far from scientific, but see the correlation? Not saying they are realted, but ass they like to say "it warrants further study"
