After surging into the top 10 last year, Connecticut dropped to 20th in Gallup’s mid-year survey of residents’ sense of well-being, the polling organization reports.
Hawaii maintains it’s hold on the No. 1 spot–no surprise there–followed by North Dakota, which ranked third last year. West Virginia and Kentucky continue to hold down the bottom of the list.
States are ranked based on residents’ assessments in six areas: life evaluation, physical health, emotional health, work environment, health behavior and basic access. This is only the mid-year report leading up to the annual results; there’s still time for Connecticut to climb–so cheer up!
