I've often wondered what percentage of the folks in this forum live around Knoxville. Or anywhere in the state.

So here's a chance to nail it down a little.

For those of you who are not Vols fans, happy to have you here, but please pass on this poll. The vast majority of you live outside Tennessee, and you'd throw off the profile. Thanks.

Go Vols!


p.s. and EDIT: synthesizing results -- I'll update this if the percentages change significantly --

1. About 11% of us (65 of 588) actually live in the Knoxville area. So we're mostly not a Knoxville crowd. That's perhaps surprising, to some here.

2. A bit less than two-thirds of us (356 of 588, 61%) currently live in Tennessee. That seems about right, actually. We are a mobile society.

3. Among those of us who do live in state, we're split 15% west, 32% central, 53% east. That's interesting.


p.p.s. and SECOND EDIT:
You forgot to add an Outside the Country option, OP.
Don't forget that our military has many, many Vol fans located all over the world.
Also, some of us are from another planet.
Would've been interesting to have had the Atlanta metro in this poll, as well. I suspect it's probably the 3rd largest source of people to VN (behind Knoxville and Nashville), but no clue what % it would be.
You ask, I deliver :)

There are now options for Atlanta metro area, and outside the United States. Everyone who already put in a response should have the option to Change Vote (bottom right corner of the poll chart) if one of these new responses more accurately reflects your situation. Thanks for the suggestions, Ed and DG. :)
