numbering, I might've also skipped thirteen. ;-)

Actually, I don't think any number was skipped, at least in the original coding which has since been tweaked. For example, Alaska is 02 and Arizona is 04; American Samoa was originally 03. Similarly, Georgia 13, Hawaii 15; Guam was originally 14. Either that, or maybe they were holding a spot open for Great Britain. :)
Ah, that would explain the gaps in my data. When I first compiled the data from the IPUMS Census files, I dropped Guam, Puerto Rico, and any other non-US entities. That's why I have 03 missing, etc. I forgot I did that, as it was a year ago.
