For the Fourth Year in a Row, Montana is Named One of the Happiest States in the U.S.
The latest Gallup just dropped the results of its yearly poll on the HAPPIEST states in the U.S. And for four years in a row, one of the happiest states is . . . the "Big Sky Country".
Montana had yet again made the list with the highest score on Gallup's "well-being index," which measures happiness by asking people to rate things like their emotional health, work environment, physical health, and overall life experience.
The top 10 happiest states are: Hawaii, Colorado, Minnesota, Utah, Vermont, Nebraska, Montana, New Hampshire, Iowa, and Massachusetts. On the other end of the scale, ALSO for the fourth year in a row, West Virginia was the least happy state in the U.S.
The bottom 10 states are: West Virginia, Kentucky, Mississippi, Tennessee, Arkansas, Alabama, Ohio, Louisiana, Indiana . . . and a three-way tie for 10th between South Carolina, Oklahoma, and Nevada.
