I take it this map shows that water is wet, right? My PC won't show it.

I'm sure no one will say "Wow I didn't know there were so many actuaries in [major city] and so few in [flyover state]". I would imagine it's particularly useful for ELs since you can see a lot more information than the directory provides on one page, with less effort.

This is incredibly useful, thanks! I am eager to see the Chicago and Boston areas be completed.

Actuary Map

A few things I didn't add that were on the SOA directory:

1. Anything that looked like a residential address.
2. Anyone that appeared to be working independently under their own name.
3. Anyone who didn't actually list their organization.

I would like to constantly update this map and everyone's input would be appreciated. Feel free to use the map but please PM me or leave a message here if you know one of the following:

1. A company/place that isn't listed on the map.
2. A company that is listed incorrectly on the map.
3. A company that doesn't traditionally hire actuaries that needs to be taken off.
4. The category of a company listed (Life / Health / P&C / Pension / Consluting / Insurance / Reinsurance etc). I will start marking different categories with different colors so people can distinguish.

I'll try to finish all the states as soon as possible!

Fully Completed States:
Alabama
Alaska
Arizona
Arkansas
Colorado
Delaware
Hawaii
Idaho
Iowa
Kansas
Kentucky
Louisiana
Maine
Michigan
Minnesota
Mississippi
Missouri
Montana
Nebraska
Nevada
New Hampshire
New Mexico
North Dakota
Oklahoma
Oregon
Rhode Island
South Carolina
South Dakota
Tennessee
Utah
Vermont
Virginia
West Virginia
Wyoming

Incomplete States:
California
Connecticut
Florida
Georgia
Illinois
Indiana
Maryland
Massachusetts
New Jersey
New York
North Carolina

If it's clear that the "number" is an estimate (for example, report in multiples of 5 or 10); this shouldn't be too big of an issue since someone leaving a company is likely to be replaced.

It would work if it were date-stamped. Also I agree with the number clustering but grouping by 5 may be a little too small.
