That map is powerful support for my thesis that the current scoring
rules are bad for contesting, because they discourage participation by
anyone outside the Atlantic Basin. Look at W6 as compared to the East
Coast. California is 12% of the US population. I'd bet that fewer than
1% of US entries in CQWW are from W6.

Instead of betting, why don't we just look at the searchable database ?

2014 CQWW CW: W6 9% of USA entries
2014 CQWW Phone: W6 9% of USA entries

You lose your bet !
