DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – A recently conducted experiment indicates that Ohioans are pretty honest.

A company owned by Coca-Cola set up the experiment.

It built un-manned racks stocked with beverages and posted a sign that the soda was $1.00 on the honor system.

96 percent of Ohioans paid for the beverage. That number puts the Buckeye State 19th on the honesty scale of 50 states.

Turns out, Alabama is the most honest state, while Rhode Island is the least honest state.

Our partners at the Dayton Business Journal reported the findings.
