New Hampshire is 9th Happiest in the Country

A recent Gallup survey found that New Hampshire is the 9th happiest in the country.  New Hampshire also tops the list for New England followed by Vermont (No. 12), Massachusetts (No. 13), Connecticut (No. 20), Maine (No. 25) and Rhode Island (No. 30).  Of course, New Hampshire’s low 5.2 percent unemployment rate (as of July, 2011) might have something to do with it.
