(WJW) — According to a new study, Ohio ranks among the top 15 “grossest” states in the U.S.
The study, conducted by Zippia, calculated each state’s grossness based on air quality, the number of landfills, and illness spread.
They also included the number of Google searches for certain gross items when determining the rankings. Zippia cites “Mayo recipes” and “Croc wearing” as search terms included in the gross category.
Here are the grossest states, according to the study:
- South Carolina
- North Carolina
- New Jersey

Virginia was listed as the grossest state in the nation. Ohio ranked number 13 overall.
