People in sunny, outdoorsy states - Louisiana, Hawaii, Florida - say they're the happiest Americans, and researchers think they know why. A new study comparing self-described pleasant feelings with objective measures of good living found these folks generally have reason to feel fine.

The places where people are most likely to report happiness also tend to rate high on studies comparing things like climate, crime rates, air quality and schools.

The happiness ratings were based on a survey of 1.3 million people across the country by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. It used data collected over four years that included a question asking people how satisfied they are with their lives.

"...At the other end of the scale, last in happiness - is New York state."

This is a no gibberish thread.  Only plain English replies please.

OK, my original comment didn't post so my subsequent one didn't make any sense. 

The NYS suicide rate is among the lowest in all fifty states.  Also, many of the people who DO commit suicide in NYS travel from other states to do so.
