With Americans preparing to show their national pride this Fourth of July, the personal-finance website WalletHub has released its report on 2018’s most patriotic states in America.

To determine where Americans have the most red, white and blue pride, WalletHub compared the 50 states across 13 indicators of patriotism.

The data set ranges from the average number of military enlistees to the share of adults who voted in the 2016 presidential election to AmeriCorps volunteers per capita.

New Hampshire ranked overall as the country’s 13th most patriotic state.

Following are some of the report’s rankings for patriotism in New Hampshire (1 = most patriotic):

1st: Civics education requirement

4th: Percent of adults who voted in the 2016 presidential election

10th: Veterans per 1,000 civilian adults

11th: Peace Corps volunteers per capita
