StateStats is like Google Insights but on a state level. Type in a search term and get Google search levels with correlations to certain “metrics” like obesity or support for Obama. Any Web application that uses correlation tends to make me feel a bit iffy, but it’s just for fun, so I guess it’s okay.
Being the immature man-child that I am, the first thing I type in the search field is poo. I thought it was
hilarious interesting that Louisiana’s relative search rate was so much higher than all the other states. Apparently, obesity correlates moderately.
I’m sure all of you will search for more sophisticated terms.
