The Happiest And Least Happy People In America

Posted by | March 14, 2011 11:50 | Filed under: Top Stories

Catherine Rampell in the New York Times found the happiest man in America last week, based on the Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index data.  He is Alvin Wong (pictured with wife Trudy Schandler-Wong)…

…a tall, Asian-American, observant Jew who is at least 65 and married, has children, lives in Hawaii, runs his own business and has a household income of more than $120,000 a year.

Then readers wanted to know who would be the least happy person.

So I’ve put together a statistical composite of the person whose characteristics are associated with the lowest levels of well-being. Statistically speaking, the least happy American would be a 4’10”, middle-aged Muslim woman without children who is separated from her husband and earns under $12,000 a year. She’s also an unemployed manufacturing worker in West Virginia.

So far, this person has not been found.
