(FOX19) - A new survey says Tri-State residents are not happy people.
A survey called the Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index has ranked the happiness of all 50 states. The index includes questions about six types of well-being, including overall evaluation of their lives, emotional health, physical health, healthy behaviors (such as whether a person smokes or exercises), and job satisfaction.
Indiana ranked 39th; Ohio was 45th and Kentucky was second to last, at 49th.
The 2010 telephone survey was conducted by the Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index between Jan. 1 and Dec. 31 and included a random sample of 352,840 adults ages 18 and older living in the 50 U.S. states and the District of Columbia.
Hawaii topped the list, while West Virginia was last.
