New Toy

I just stumbled on this new gadget created by Doug Beeferman. It ranks Google search terms by state popularity and shows correlations of the search term with different variables. If you're curious about regional differences it is kind of a fun deal.

Here are a couple of interesting searches with a high MN ranking:

unemployment - MN ranked 7th in the USA for volume of people searching about unemployment.

quality of life - MN ranked 9th

ice fishing - the stereotype holds, Minnesotans are 2nd in searching about ice fishing.

You really can't draw large conclusions about the relationships, but it's a fun time waster.
