Our interests and curiosities reveal a lot about us, and state-by-state analysis shows just what interests Americans.

Data compiled by Google Trends shows which states were most curious about a variety of search topics – from news stories to celebrity gossip or healthy and beauty tips.

The real estate website Estately entered many popular search terms into Google Trends to find which states searched those more frequently than other states.

For example, Colorado residents searched for information on marijuana more than any other state, while Oklahoma residents made the most searches for Ebola or Ebola symptoms, New Mexico residents were most curious about zombies, and Washington residents made more searches for information on Gamergate.

Some of the grouped searches revealed the essential character of some states.

Vermont, for example, made the most searches for actress/director Lena Dunham, folk singer Pete Seeger, feminism, kale, actor Benedict Cumberbatch, and the film “The Grand Budapest Hotel.”

Wisconsin, on the other hand, showed the most interest in the dating app Tinder and Pabst Blue Ribbon beer, while Arkansas made the most searches for politician Mike Huckabee and the TV show “Dancing With The Stars.”
