Happiest States In the USA: Where Does Louisiana Rank?

A couple of weeks ago, a Harvard study showed that the happiest cities in America are right here in Louisiana; Shreveport came in third. But how about the state as a whole? Well, a new survey shows a bit of a discrepancy.

The poll, conducted by Gallup, measures happiness — or well-being — on a set of six categories: life evaluation, emotional health, work environment, physical health, healthy behaviors and access to basic necessities.

The top three happiest states are North Dakota, South Dakota and Nebraska. The least happy? West Virginia, Kentucky and Mississippi. And our very own Louisiana? Well, according to this study, we come in at a not-so-impressive 41st.

So, do you buy it? Do you think these ‘happiness’ statistics are legitimate?
