Do any of you know of a place where there's a listing of records by USA States? (i.e. Californian Records for all events taken place, Michigan, New York...)

I'm in Texas and I'm trying to find out the single best 3x3x3 time in competition and out of competition, as well as the record 3x3x3 averages here in and out of competitions.

Doesn't exist as far as I know, unless someone with way too much time and information on their hands has compiled it somewhere.

No, information about states isn't even collected at most competitions...though I think if I looked at the list of the top USA cubers, I could determine the state of most.

Oh, and by Texas records I mean this:

The best time achieved by a USA citizen during a competition held within Texas state lines.
OutOfComp. - The best time achieved by a USA citizen who resides in Texas, while in Texas. Well, I wonder if it would count if I went out of state for a week and broke a record here, and then came back?

In WCA comps, you represent your home country, regardless of where you are.
So actually, as long as you live in Texas, it should count...

After checking records, the best time that fits the qualifications is 13.97

Where the competition is held shouldn't matter at all, if you really want to know the Texas State Record. National records are just given to the fastest time by someone from that country, regardless of where or when the competition is, and it only makes sense to do state records the same way. You should just look for the fastest single by someone from Texas.

Which can't be on the WCA site because that information isn't shown. :(

And so the research begins.

I thought I remembered signing my name under Alabama in a Wiki somebody posted sometime ago. Everyone was supposed to sign their name under their respective state. Am I the only one that remembers this?

I saw that several weeks ago, I'll sign it soon.
If you know where it is, please post a link. I'd like to look at it again.

This brings up an interesting point.

Perhaps we should start collecting more information about a competitor during the registration process. This would allow for more in-depth analysis of results by region, gender, etc. The WCA is still pretty small, but it is growing quite fast. I think it would be great to eventually have more information about each competitor which can be entered into the database and analyzed. I think now is a good time to start.

Thanks a lot! I guess I'm the Alabama state champ so far!

I agree. Although I wouldn't think of it as a big deal if I was the fastest in Alabama, it'd still be cool to have a breakdown of the cubing world by state.
