    Cool graphic. I assume that the last graphic (of the U.S.) should be titled “Location of Survey Respondents” (and not something like “Location of Tipper Activity”).

    This survey information is interesting. The anonymous transaction data that both Square and Simple.com publicly released about tipping is mostly consistent about 1. the tipping range / frequency (15%-20%) and 2. restaurants tend to increment a little higher in the tipping range and frequency.

    That said, it is interesting to see that Californians were among the highest respondents to the survey since they (and New Hampshire residents) are among the lowest tippers (esp. in the most affluent Bay Area cities). The mean averages for tipping rates in this data may be balanced by some of the higher states like Alaska, West Virginia, Kentucky, & Alabama.
