    First of all, "mentally inclined" people doesn't mean anything. Are you talking about mentally ill? There's no reason one state would have more than another, and I don't know that you could find any statistics on that. There ARE statistics on the number of people with certain levels of education, but that has more to do with socioeconomics than intellectual capacity.

    The South typically has the highest rate due to their diet and higher rates of drinking/smoking while pregnant.
