Maryland came in 8th on WalletHub’s “2021’s Happiest States in America” list. Our neighbor, Virginia, came in 14th.
In this study, WalletHub drew upon the findings of “happiness” research to determine which environmental factors are linked to a person’s overall well-being and satisfaction with life. Previous studies by WalletHub found that good economic, emotional, physical and social health are all key to a well-balanced and fulfilled life.
The map below shows all states from the WalletHub list in order (the darkest color being the “happiest”).
