Study ranks Iowa as 8th Happiest State

Posted: Updated:

A study by WalletHub ranks Iowa as the 8th happiest state in its 2015 Most and Least Happy States in America.

The study is based on several components, including finances and income.

However, it says a pleasant state is also based on one's mental and physical health, job satisfaction, positive feelings, environment, social connectivity and general outlook on life.

Utah ranked as the Happiest State, followed by Minnesota, Hawaii, Colorado and North Dakota in the top five.

West Virginia ranked as the Least Happy State.
