A new study looked at things like average income, mental health stats, crime, how long commutes are, and how much free time people have. And it ranked all 50 states according to how easy it is to be “HAPPY” if you live there.
Utah and Hawaii were CLOSE to the top. They ranked #1 in a few different categories. But overall, the happiest state is . . . MINNESOTA.
The top ten are Minnesota . . . Utah . . . Hawaii . . . California . . . Nebraska . . . New Jersey . . . South Dakota . . . Iowa . . . Wisconsin . . . and New Hampshire.
The ten LEAST happy states are West Virginia . . . Oklahoma . . . Louisiana . . . Alabama . . . Arkansas . . . Mississippi . . . Kentucky . . . Missouri . . . Tennessee . . . and Alaska.
Arizona came in at 21st place!
