The Most Boring Places in Louisiana

Can a town really be called "boring"?

Isn't that really just a matter of opinion and taste?

What's drab and boring to one person might be something someone else finds quite enjoyable.

The folks over at roadsnacks.net put together an algorithm to determine what makes a city "boring" and then applied that algorithm every Louisiana city.

The algorithm was applied to every Louisiana city with a population of 5,000 residents or higher.

From roadsnacks.net -

"We used the U.S. American Community Census data to gather the information presented here. Some of the things people tend to think of as making a city’s population boring include:

1. % of Population Over 25 (higher is more boring)
2. % of Married Household (higher is more boring)
3. Average Age (higher is more boring)
4. % of Households With Kids (higher is more boring)
5. Population density (lower is more boring)"

"Before you get all upset if your city’s name is on the list, rest assured that we didn’t use personal opinion when it comes to what classifies a city or town as 'boring' or 'exciting'.

We crunched actual numbers to figure out which towns are statistically more boring."
