What are the biggest priorities that Los Angeles as a city is most concerned and curious about? New year-end data about our Google searches may be able to shine some light on what the majority of L.A. is talking about.

According to LAist, the site 2012 Zeitgeist has collected data from all over the nation about the most searched for terms from the past year that are broken down into categories like events, music, films and people.

To narrow it down even more, LAist went to Google to break down the top searches from L.A. itself, and to little surprise, our sports teams made up the bulk of the searches. Topping the list on both L.A.’s and the nation’s most Googled terms was “Whitney Houston” on the heels of her tragic death.
