Considering climate was a factor, its no surprise. All the states are northern states. Michigan, New Hampshire, North Dakota, and Wyoming & Idaho (?) probably weren't on the list due to lower cost of living, plus lower income taxes.

But aside Michigan, none of those Northern states that didn't make the list have any significant industry or population centers. They're small states.
