A post on Medium in May 2016 attempted to tackle a seemingly unanswerable question: what’s the weirdest town in America? To do this, Lyman Stone used 20 different variables, including what percentage of each city’s population was foreign-born, married, working, in the armed forces, etc. He then compared that data to national averages. What he found was that San Jose, CA, is the most bizarre town in the US. But though it may be demographically weird, San Jose doesn’t hold a candle to these weird small towns in the United States.
