A new study found the happiest & unhappiest states in the U.S. And, for some reason, Oklahoma is one of the unhappiest states.
I mean, with at least one (sometimes two) dispensaries on every corner, how is everyone in Oklahoma not OK? Or, at the very least, how are they not so stoned out of their mind that they don’t care anymore?
All 50 states were ranked based on 31 different metrics, and the pandemic WAS factored in.
It included stuff like: COVID-19 rates and restrictions, overall health, career satisfaction, life expectancy, unemployment, depression, and weather.
The 10 least happy states are:
- West Virginia
- New Mexico
The 10 happiest states in the U.S. are:
- North Dakota
- South Dakota
- New Jersey
It’s an annual study, and the Top 10 and Bottom 10 didn’t change much from 2020.
South Dakota and Massachusetts climbed up into the Top 10, while New Mexico sunk into the Bottom 10.
And, in case you’re wondering, Texas was on the unhappy end, too. They ranked at #38.
