Scouting Magazine recently published its list of how many Eagle Scouts each state produced in 2015. Number one on the list for the seventh straight year in a row was Utah.
Scouting Magazine attributes this accomplishment in large part to the strong support scouting receives from the LDS Church. Along with Utah, many other states with a large LDS population also made it into the top 10.
Every year since this list was created beginning in 2009, Utah has produced the most Eagle Scouts of any state in the nation.
Here is a list of the top 10 states that produced the most Eagle Scouts in 2015. The first list ranks states based on sheer numbers, the second is adjusted based on the population for each state. For the full list, check out Scouting Magazine.
