I do not know about a site with specific stats, but the first map may be inaccurate in part, and I suspect the second map is a troll map, and at the very least is completely inaccurate.
http://www.census.gov/prod/2013pubs/acs-22.pdf

Here is a rather interesting report done by the US Census Bureau. There isn't a whole lot of detailed info per state, but there is quite a bit on the whole country.

I realize, that you realize, how time consuming it is to memorize the spelling of Asteriktos.

In any case I read the "about section" for the monastery.  You must be an expert. Why do they use the term Sergianist Bosom? I confess that I have never seen a Russ Myers film but this is what comes to mind when I read this. I will leave it at that rather than embarrass myself further.
