Arkansas Residents Not So Happy?

A new Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index Poll ranks Arkansas in the bottom 10. The phone poll, conducted throughout the year in 2010 looked at six categories of well being: life evaluation (self-evaluation about your present life situation and anticipated one in five years); emotional health; work environment (such as job satisfaction); physical health; healthy behavior; and basic access (access to health care, a doctor, a safe place to exercise and walk, as well as community satisfaction).

The top 10 states are:

1.     Hawaii: 71.0

2.     Wyoming: 69.2

3.     North Dakota: 68.4

4.     Alaska: 68.3

5.     Colorado: 68.0

6.     Minnesota: 68.0

7.     South Dakota: 68.0

8.     Utah: 67.9

9.     Connecticut: 67.9

10.  Nebraska: 67.8

11.  Massachusetts: 67.8

The bottom 10 are:

1.  West Virginia: 61.7

2.  Kentucky: 61.9

3.  Mississippi: 63.0

4.  Arkansas: 63.7

5.  Alabama: 63.7

6.  Ohio: 63.8

7.  Delaware: 64.2

8.  Nevada: 64.2

9.  Louisiana: 64.3

10.  Michigan: 64.6

(I see Arkansas scores slightly higher than Mississippi on this list…  Keeping Arkansas’ motto in tact in yet another survey:  “hey, at least we’re not Mississippi”.)

Arkansas residents, how would you rate your own situation in the areas listed above?
