What State Of MInd Are You In?

I read the data like 17 times and I don't see Wa. State on either list?
I demand a recount, we live in a beautiful STATE don't we?
It's no surprise that paradise on Earth -- otherwise known as Hawaii -- is the happiest state. But coming in right behind it are Colorado, Minnesota and Utah. Leading the list of most miserable states are West Virginia, Kentucky and Mississippi. So if it's not beautiful, sunny weather and warm temperatures that make people happy, what is it? The Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index, ranked all 50 states for their well-being, based on a survey of 1.7 million Americans. They took into account such factors as their emotional health, life evaluation, work environment, physical health, healthy behaviors and basic access to health insurance, food, shelter and medicines.



The top 10 happiest states with the highest sense of well-being:
  1. Hawaii
  2. Colorado
  3. Minnesota
  4. Utah
  5. Vermont
  6. Montana
  7. Nebraska
  8. New Hampshire
  9. Iowa
  10. Massachusetts
The top 10 most miserable states with the lowest sense of well-being:
  1. West Virginia
  2. Kentucky
  3. Mississippi
  4. Tennessee
  5. Arkansas
  6. Alabama
  7. Ohio
  8. Louisiana
  9. Indiana
  10. Oklahoma
Almost 60 percent of Hawaii's residents say they are thriving in life versus just 45 percent in West Virginia who say the same thing. People who live in the states with the highest well-being scores tend to smoke less, exercise more and try to learn new things every day. They also have more energy and fewer health problems. The happier states have lower poverty rates and higher median incomes than the states deemed most miserable. The top 10 happiest states have unemployment rates that are lower than the national average. West Virginia, Kentucky, Ohio, Arkansas and Mississippi have ranked in the bottom 10 every year since the survey began.
