A recent study conducted by TOP Agency ranks the resident of Pennsylvania as among the happiest in the nation. The evaluation of the happiness of each state is based on seven dimensions, including employment, leisure activities, mental health, personal finance, personal relationships, physical health, and social policies. Although Pennsylvania is not one of the top five on the ranking, it is still among the happiest states on the list. For example, Pennsylvania is ranked fourth in terms of having the lowest quit rates in the nation. 

The top five states include Massachusetts, Illinois, Connecticut, New Jersey, and New York. Meanwhile, the least happy states include Louisiana, Kentucky, Mississippi, Arkansas, and West Virginia.
