Happiest States to Live In

I saw an article the other day that really caught my attention. It was a survey done throughtout America that revealed where the most happiest people live. I found that it is very interesting how the southern states seemed to find themselves near the top of the list mixed in with states that have a slower pace of life. It seems that those who live in areas that are slower paced and more family oriented are the happiest. It’s fun to look at these things, however, we all know that true happiness only comes in a relationship with Jesus and the happiest place to be would be our heavenly home. Here is a looks at how all the states ranked in 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.
