See Where Illinois Falls on the Happiest States List
Are you happy to be living in Illinois? Your answer to this question is most likely, "kinda." Because Illinois falls on the list right in the middle... in the kinda happy to live here department.
A new study by WalletHub ranked the happiness of each of the 50 states, and our good old Illinois came in at number 29 of 51.
I know, I know, there are only 51 states, but we have to fit Washington D.C. in there somewhere, so it's out of 51 "states."
The ranking is based on income, as well as physical and mental health, job satisfaction and environment.
Where should we move to in order to be happier? Utah.
The top five happy states are Utah, Minnesota, Hawaii, Colorado and North Dakota.
Where should we steer clear of? Tennessee, Mississippi, Kentucky, Alabama and West Virginia.
