The Top Ten “Happiest” States in America

happiest states in americaOn February 20, 2014 Gallup released its “State Of American Well-Being” Report which uses 55 unique measures of “happiness” to arrive at their rankings.  While many similar indexes tend to focus on a single indicator, such as relative health of residents as measured by obesity, the Gallup polling presents a broader and dare we say more accurate picture, measuring what role economics, politics, psychology and sociology play in our sense of well-being such as access to educational and other growth opportunities.  Some states, North Dakota, South Dakota and Washington have worked hard to catapult themselves into the top percentile, while others like Minnesota, Montana and Vermont have remained steadily ensconced there.
