The States of Happiness

How happy are the people in your state? How does that compare to other states? The Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index has released the rankings of states based on how happy the residents are. Hawaii lost its number one ranking from 2012 to 2013, while the oil boom in North Dakota made a huge difference in the residents’ happiness. Or is that because people moved to North Dakota for jobs and are happy to have one? The web page doesn’t tell us much about the reasons behind the rankings, but you can download the full report if you are interested. As a Kentuckian, let’s just say I am grateful for the sad people of West Virginia. -via Time Newsfeed
