I'll give you a hint: it's not Florida.

For years, Hawaii has been the happiest state in the country, with a large percentage of residents claiming to love life in the Aloha State.

According to a Gallup Well-Being in dex, Hawaii has dropped to 8th on the list, and a new happiest state has been declared: North Dakota.

I'm just as surprised as you are.

The survey took into account basic factors, such as employment, emotional and physical health, weather, and things to do. North Dakota's overall score was 70.4 out of 100. In fact, most of the happiest people lived in the Midwest or West: South Dakota, Nebraska, Minnesota, and Montana round out the top five.

The saddest state in the US was West Virginia, for the fifth year in a row. Bummer.

In case you were wondering, Florida ranked at #34.
