How people perceive California

February 5th, 2012

After a friend posted this on Facebook, I was moved to create this graph that has been bouncing around in my head for a while:

Northern California = San Francisco, Southern California = LA/San Diego, Central and East San Diego don't exist.

In contrast with reality

Also, can we all realize that San Francisco is in the middle of California and stop using using “San Francisco” and “Northern California” as synonyms? There are 300 miles of California north of San Francisco.
