The CDC says that in 2018 there were 86,000 people born in Washington and 11,000 born in Alaska. So how does Alaska beat Washington in "More people born in the state"? Percentage? Your answer to the "Greatest maximum ascent" makes it seem like you think that "ascent" and "elevation" are synonymous, but they really aren't. There are routes up Rainier that have 11,500 feet elevation gain, which is more than the difference between Colorado's maximum and minimum elevations. Montana and Idaho have the same maximum latitude, but Montana has a geographic center that is north of Idaho's, so how does Idaho beat Washington in northerliness but Montana doesn't?
