Happiest U.S. States Pinned Down | LiveScience



A new study found that a person's self-reported happiness matches up with objective measures of state-level happiness.
The results are based on an examination of two data sets, one that included personal reports of happiness for 1.3 million Americans and the other that included objective measures, such as how crowded that state is, air quality, home prices and other factors known to impact quality of life.
Click here to learn more about the survey and what it means.
Here are the 50 U.S. states (and the District of Columbia) in order of their well-being:
1. Louisiana
2. Hawaii
3. Florida
4. Tennessee


I love Louisiana too. Shame the weather sucks down there.


(If you scroll to the bottom, you'll see that "cranky yankee" is for real)

It would be really cool if that study was broken down by MSA.

?? Lots of unhappy people over on the city-data memphis forum. Maybe they're dragging the state down.

I'd like to see what percentile we would be in nationally here in the TriCities. But that would require polling at least 40 people from EVERY MSA. Since there are almost 600 MSAs, it probably and unfortunately is not going to happen.
