According to data this rise was especially pronounced in many states, with the District of Columbia recording a whopping 249% jump.

Other states that experienced at least a 50% increase included California (51%), Oregon (45%), Illinois (43%), Massachusetts (43%), Nevada (43%), Maryland (37%), Washington (36%) and Maine (33%).

In terms of other states that saw increases beyond 25%, Missouri notched 33%, New York 32%, Texas 32%, Colorado 31%, Montana 31%, Indiana 30%, North Carolina 30% and Wisconsin 30%. Similarly, other places that fell into this category included New Jersey with 28%, Arkansas 27%, Connecticut 27%, Georgia 27% and Virginia 27%.

Minnesota, New Mexico and South Carolina were each recorded at 24%, while Utah came in slightly lower at 23%. Oklahoma demonstrated 22% growth, Alabama 21% and Idaho 22%.

Iowa was next on the list with 21%, showing a modest yet notable increase over the prior year. Louisiana posted 21% as well, followed by Mississippi’s 20% rise.
