(KXNET) — With 50 percent of Americans saying they are “very satisfied” with the way their personal life is going, personal finance website WalletHub released its report on 2023’s Happiest States in America.
To determine where Americans have the highest satisfaction with life, WalletHub compared the 50 states across 30 key indicators of happiness. The data set ranges from the depression rate and the share of adults feeling productive to income growth and the unemployment rate.
