DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – Ohio isn’t exactly geeking out about a new study. We’re lacking in nerds.

According to real estate company Estately, the Buckeye State ranks among states with few nerds coming in at number 30.

Utah topped the list while Washington, D.C. was last.

Rankings were based on people who expressed an interest in a dozen “nerdy” interests including Star Trek, Pokemon cards and comic books.
