For the last two weeks, people in Michigan have shared their reasons for staying in the state.

We asked people to publish images that capture why they stay after a Gallup poll showed that 37% of us would rather live somewhere else.

This was a project with 10 other public radio stations spread across the country. We all asked our audience members to use the hashtag #whyIstay when sharing a picture.

Thousands of people shared their reasons for living where they do.

You can view all the entries here. And here's a map of some of the pictures shared in the entire project .

And this map shows a few of our favorites from Michigan (you can also view it by clicking here):
