The Most (And Least) Happy States In America

 

New research from WalletHub shows that Hawaii is the “happiest” state in America this year, with a score of 68.27. The company took a look at all 50 states in terms of “Work Environment,” “Emotional & Physical Well-Being” and “Community & Environment.” It then looked at these in terms of 31 other factors before giving each state a score out of 100. WalletHub used information from the U.S. Census Bureau, among many other sources.
