An annual study found the happiest states in the U.S. in 2022.

All 50 states were ranked based on 30 different metrics, including stuff like: Emotional and physical health, career satisfaction, unemployment, life expectancy, depression, sleep, and weather.

The 10 happiest states in the U.S. are: Hawaii, Maryland, Minnesota, Utah, New Jersey, Idaho, California, Illinois, Nebraska, and Connecticut.

The 10 LEAST happy are: West Virginia, Louisiana, Arkansas, Kentucky, Alabama, Mississippi, Oklahoma . . . Tennessee, New Mexico, and Missouri.

Right in the middle, the 25th state, which apparently doesn't lean happy or unhappy is: Wyoming.

Where did Arizona land? We came in at the 2nd half, as the 31st happiest state.
