Player distributions were calculated by SbS Football and are based on the following sources.

  • NFL players are based on opening day rosters per team websites, NFL.com and the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
  • FBS/FCS players are based on the rosters form official team websites (as of mid-August).
  • High School 4 and 5 Star players are based on the current Senior class per 247Sports' composite ranking (as of mid-August).
  • Per capita figures are on a per million population basis (2010 census).

Teams are assigned to the state in which they are physically located (i.e. the state where they play their home games). However, an exception is made for three NFL teams physically located in a state we do not consider to be its primary state.
