The Middle is Still on Top
It’s been about three months since the last happiness index, and the top spots remain occupied by heartland states. Nebraska, again is the winner, followed by Iowa and Kansas. There have been some big movers. Minnesota and New Hampshire are now in the top ten. As far as the least happy states, Florida, with huge unemployment, debt and foreclosure rates, still maintains it’s place at the bottom, and Illinois has dropped into the bottom ten as well.
