During the 2020 pandemic, most people can agree that the year was a big blur. With most things returning to normal, the United States then got hit with rising inflation. This can create added stress for some.
“In fact, 87% of Americans are ‘anxious’ or ‘very anxious’ about inflation, according to a recent American Psychiatric Association poll,” said a WalletHub. The study found how ‘happiness’ determined a person’s well-being. “Previous studies have found that good economic, emotional, physical and social health are all key to a well-balanced and fulfilled life,” according to the WalletHub article.
The methodology behind the survey determined the happiest states in America, by comparing the 50 states across three key dimensions; 1. Emotional & Physical Well-Being, 2. Work Environment and 3. Community & Environment.
New Mexico ranked No. 42, with Emotional & Physical and Well being at No. 42, the work environment at No. 47, and community & environment at No. 17.
