If you take nothing else from this article, just know that people are doing fine in Hawaii. The state has the lowest share of adult depression, coming in at 11.88%. For reference, Maine has a 26.89% share, but they have good beer, so at least their... hoppyiness ranking… is higher.
North Dakota is noteworthy, with a 13.10% long-term unemployment rate, the lowest of the country. They beat out New Mexico, the highest, by 31.8 percentage points.
Last -- but certainly not least -- is Utah. They are freakin’ cute over there, with the highest volunteer rate (51%!) and the lowest divorce rate (26.19%).
So, basically, move to Hawaii to chill, Utah to cuff, and North Dakota to work. And get happier in general, US, because 19 is a weird happiness ranking for a country so obsessed with calculating joy.
