The ranking is based on the review of 5,000 tweets between September 2017 and September 2018.

The top 5 states based tweets are:

1. North Dakota
2. Ohio
3. Nevada
4. Nebraska
5. New York

This was based on the number of ghost sightings or claims that a house/room/hall/school is haunted on Twitter and normalized based on the population of the state. This effectively showed how many sightings there were per person.

Brandwatch removed spikes driven by people watching and liking YouTube videos and also removed retweets.

The top 5 least haunted states are:

1. Mississippi
2. South Carolina
3. Delaware
4. Vermont
5. Missouri

There are many haunted places in Las Vegas, including several hotel-casinos, and the rest of the state.
