Are you happy living in the Garden State? New Jersey ranks 3rd for happiness in new study
New Jersey has been ranked the third happiest state in the United States to live in.
Hawaii came in at No. 1, followed by Connecticut at No. 2.
“I can see that,” says Ellie Lee, of New Brunswick. “I think it’s a good state to live in. We have the best pizza, so maybe that has something to do with it.”
The full-service medication access company, Nicerx, published its findings of the happiest states in the country using life expectancy, mean household income, homicides, safety, poverty rate and adults with serious mental illness as its methodology.
“New Jersey is the greatest state in the nation, so it makes sense that we’re all happy,” says Matt Hale, of Highland Park.
Mississippi finished last, preceded by Louisiana and Arkansas.
