At least five American government websites have a list of all the 50 states. The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), the United States Mint, the United States official government portal for kids, and the full U.S. Government portal all provide lists.
The BLS' list of all 50 states gives information for all state labor market information. The IRS' list provides links to each state's individual website. This list is targeted towards small business owners looking to start a business in a particular state and trying to find out information about taxation issues. Both lists are alphabetical.
The U.S. Mint's list is non-alphabetical, unlike the previous two. It is designed for kids to learn more information about the U.S. State quarter program. The list is divided by the year certain state quarters were released to the public. Teachers can also find lesson plans based on the state quarter program.
The U.S. Government portal for kids is alphabetical. It provides links to state websites, games, and videos based on U.S. history. The full U.S. Government list is also alphabetical. It provides links to state and territory websites.
The 50 states in alphabetical order are: Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia, Wisconsin and Wyoming.
