State Stats is an interesting little application that I stumbled across. You enter a query that you are interested in and then it gives you information, broken down by state, on who in the United Sates is doing that search. They use the Google chart API to give you a nice color coded map, too.

On top of that, they show the correlation between where the search is done and different statistics about those states. Such as longitude (like, location), literacy, unemployment and even infant mortality rate (kind of morbid). They make sure to note that correlation is not the same as causality, but some of the stuff is pretty interesting.
