Happiest states or states of happiness?

These WalletHub surveys about where people are happiest seem kind of silly to me, but for a Monday, something sort of positive.

They say they study markers such as emotional health, income level, sports participation, ad infinitum.

The 10 happiest states?


Utah
Minnesota
North Dakota
Hawaii
Colorado
Idaho
Nebraska
South Dakota
California

I see a lot of wide open spaces there. But Hawaii I get. Except it's expensive. But Hawaii also has the lowest rate of depression.

DC has the lower number of suicides.

North Dakota has the lowest long-term unemployment rate. Fracking?

Utah has the lowest rate of heart attacks (West Virginia has the highest).

In Utah more people volunteer than in any other state--due to the Mormon influence? It also has the lowest divorce rate--same question.

Tra-la!
