AP Scholar Awards Per Capita

AP Scholar Awards are academic distinctions given to students who have received high scores on multiple Advanced Placement (AP) exams. The number of AP Scholar Awards was sourced from the AP Data Archive and the state populations was sourced from the American Community Survey 1-Year Data for 2019. There are many types of AP Scholar Awards and the quantity of each award is presented in the AP Scholar Awards data, but only the total number of awards was utilized in the map below. Rural states with lower populations tend to have a lower number of AP Scholar Awards per capita.
