How do states measure up on the well-being scale? This study tells you
Where you live could determine how well you feel — and how long you live. At least that’s the finding of a study called Measure of America that ranked U.S. states by education, health and income.
The Hartford Courant explains why Connecticut came in tops and why that matters: “A baby born in Connecticut today has a life expectancy of 5 years more than a baby born in West Virginia,” the story says.
Maybe so. But the same story also points to a different study in which the Nutmeg State drew low marks on the happiness scale.
