April 8, 2009 by: Bargain BabeHow happy are you? An economic index. The folks at MainStreet.com created a handy chart that ranks the happiness of people living in each state based on three factors: the number of foreclosures, unemployment and debt. Nebraska is top-ranked. California is No. 49. Half of the top 10 states are in the Midwest. I encourage you to check the chart out and read their story about the ranking.
