NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -

Many Louisiana and Mississippi residents feel blue, according to a new study.

The two states rank among the least happy in the nation. Louisiana sits at No. 40 while Mississippi ranks No. 48, according to a study from WalletHub

The study examined several key factors to determine a state’s overall happiness, including financial security, mental and physical health, job satisfaction, positive feelings, environment, social connectivity and general outlook on life.

All of these elements were used to identify the states that are home to the happiest Americans.

Utah, Minnesota, Hawaii, Colorado and North Dakota are the happiest states, according to the study.

West Virginia is the least happy state followed by Alabama, Kentucky, Mississippi and Tennessee.

The study can be viewed in its entirety here. Mobile users can view the full ranking of happiest states here.
