W.Va. Still Last in Well-Being Index
If you want to improve your sense of well-being, leave the Lower 48.
A new report ranking all 50 states based on residents' sense of well-being puts Hawaii at No. 1, followed by Alaska, which held the top spot last year.
Hawaii has been No. 1 in the poll five times since 2008.
The survey from Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index had Montana, Colorado and Wyoming rounding out the rest of the top five.
The State of American Well-Being: 2015 State Rankings report was compiled from a non-scientific telephone survey of residents across the country.
The survey listed the bottom five as Indiana, Ohio, Oklahoma, Kentucky and West Virginia.
That's a familiar spot for West Virginia, which has been last in the rankings for the past seven years. Kentucky has been No. 49 during the same time.
