Congratulations, Minnesotans. You live in the happiest state in the nation, according to a WalletHub analysis.
Minnesota edged out Utah (No. 2), Hawaii (No. 3), California (No. 4) and Nebraska (No. 5).
The analysis took into account a number of factors and came up with a point-based system. Those factors included:
The nation's unhappiest state? West Virginia.
How do the border states shape up?
It even honored Minnesota with several top listings on its 2017 Best Beach Towns to Live in. Eden Prairie was ranked third in the nation in that analysis.
See how other states rank
