As 2015 winds down, the folks at real estate blog Estately have figured out which celebrities, news stories, and other topics of interest most captivated people across the United States this year. Using data from Google Trends, they identified the term each state Googled more than any other state over the course of the year. (They did the same thing in 2014—check out the map below to see how we’ve progressed, and see here for the full 2015 analysis.)

People in Wisconsin are evidently feeling a bit behind the times, wondering, “What does ‘bae’ mean?” (2015) and “What is Tinder?” (2014). Utah, caught with an embarrassing search history last year, wanted to learn more about transgender issues this year. And it’s not clear what’s going on in New Mexico, where people searched for “Pluto” in 2015 and “zombies” in 2014. See how your state compares with the rest, and happy Googling in 2016.
