Not all states are safe on Black Friday.
Decluttr, a website where you can sell and trade electronics, compiled a map that shows where you’re most likely to find chaos on Black Friday.
The map uses Black Friday search data from Google, as well as FBI arrest data for crimes like property damage and disorderly conduct for each state on Black Friday.
The map then adjusted each state’s number to account for population size.
Utah sits about middle of the road, placing at No. 28 on the list. Delaware (No. 26) and Michigan are considered more chaotic than the Beehive State, while Idaho and Wisconsin are less so.
Wyoming topped the list as the most chaotic state, followed by Illinois, Arizona, Mississippi and Kansas in the top five.
Montana, Connecticut, New Jersey, Massachusetts and Oregon are considered the least chaotic states for Black Friday.

Stores across America will be filled to the brim on Black Friday as shoppers seek out special sales and doorbusters. These large crowds become dangerous every year, as there are commonly reports of injuries, crimes and even fatalities on Black Friday.
“It’s sad,” a shopper told New York Post in 2016. “We’ve been doing this, me and my girls, for probably about 10 years now, just for the fun of going out — a girls’ night and trying to get some special sales and it’s getting scary now.”
Consumers have started shopping earlier this year to avoid the Black Friday hassle, though, according to WNCT, a news station in North Carolina.
Stores have added pre-Black Friday sales to encourage shoppers to avoid Black Friday hassles.
