The UNHAPPIEST STATES Of AMERICA On PLAYBOY!!!

MostUnhappyStates-01
Not everyone can live in a blissful state, either emotionally or quite literally!!!

PLAYBOY Magazine decided to find out which states are the unhappiest, based on four data categories we can all agree are quite unhappy: 

1. ALCOHOL DEATHS

2. POVERTY RATE

3. SELF-REPORTED OBESITY

4. SUICIDE RATE

Unfortunately, if your state is first on this list, it’s the saddest state in the UNITED STATES.

METHODOLOGY:Ranked each of the 50 states in our four categories of unhappiness: 
CATEGORIES OF UNHAPPINESS
• Alcohol Deaths Per 100,000
• Poverty Rate by Household Income
• Prevalence of Self Reported Obesity
• Suicides per 100,000 (2x weight)
We decided suicide rate should be worth double since it’s such a strong barometer of unhappiness. 
EXAMPLE:
If Montana was first in suicides per 100,000 people, it earned a total of 100 points in that one category. (And this is like golf, points are bad.) At the end, we added up all the totals and the states with the most points are deemed the unhappiest. Here’s a full list, for our non-visual learners:
