Kentucky is Second Unhappiest State

Kentucky isn’t exactly Walt Disney World, which dubs itself “the happiest place on Earth,” according to a report released this week. A new Gallup poll lists Kentucky as the second unhappiest state in the United States, ahead of only neighboring West Virginia. Gallup relied on six measures to score each state on a well-being index, as well as six subindexes – including life evaluation, emotional health, work environment, physical health, healthy behavior and basic access to health care and healthy opportunities, such as places to exercise.
