California and Vermont Have Largest & Smallest Lottery Populations (Lottery Trivia Answer 2010-12)

Last Week's Trivia Question #2010-12 was: 
To help us understand whether states with the largest populations sell the most lottery tickets, we need to identify various State populations. So, last week, we asked:
  • Which lottery selling States have the largest population? (most amount of people)
  • Which States have the smallest population? (the least amount of people)
Based on the 2009 revision of the WorldAtlas.com , we found that:
  • The top 5 States (1-5) ranked by biggest Population are: California, Texas, New York, Florida, and Illinois. The next five (6-10) were: Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan, Georgia, and North Carolina.
  • And, the States with the fewest number of people (ranking 43-50) were: Montana, Delaware, South Dakota, Alaska, North Dakota, Vermont, and Wyoming. (Note that since neither Alaska nor Wyoming sponsor a state lottery, we have expanded this list to include the bottom five states that do have a lottery).
