Which States Rent the Most Bounce House

Since the day bounce house was invented, most American families have been renting this inflatable toy several times per year. You might wonder which states rent the most bounce house.

There are 2 ways to fetch this data, one is search data from Google, the other is inflatable rental businesses’ inquiries to the inflatable manufacturers. These might not tell all the story, but it is the best measurement so far.

1. Google Trends

To see what states hire the most inflatable bounce houses is approximately equal to how many searches are on the topic of bounce house rentals.

However, it probably does not represent the true data. The reason is people from different states and regions tend to use divergent search terms and fancy different inflatable products.

Let’s use the keyword bounce house rental and put it in the Google trends.

The top 10 states rent the most bounce house are (time range: past 5 years):

  • Florida
  • Texas
  • Indiana
  • Michigan
  • Utah
  • Rhode Island
  • Missouri
  • Illinois
  • Connecticut
  • Arkansas

 

2. Data from a Manufacturer

Another way of looking into the insight is from perspective of a bounce house and water slide manufacturer. As an inflatable manufacturer ourselves, we can say that the list above is in line with our client geography to some degree. We also need to point out that California and New York would also be qualified into the top ten list, but somehow all of which get an inexplicable lower rank in Google’s data.

Normally we reason the more residents a state has, the more bounce house rentals should happen.

Let’s look at the population rank of the 10 above states:

  • Florida – 3
  • Texas – 2
  • Indiana – 17
  • Michigan – 10
  • Utah – 30
  • Rhode Island – 45
  • Missouri – 18
  • Illinois – 6
  • Connecticut – 29
  • Arkansas – 34

As you can see, something does not add up. Take Rhode Island, it has a quite low population, but by some means it ranks the sixth in the most hire bounce house state list. Either the citizens of the Ocean State just love jumping on a bouncy house whensoever, or the data from Google trend is inaccurate.

Anyway, there aren’t sufficient data to depict the whole picture. This is not a scientific way to demonstrate an answer to the original question, but rather an auxiliary.
