Connecticut is the second unhappiest state in the country — at least according to a study released yesterday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The study, which was based on a survey of 1.3 million Americans, asserts that Connecticut residents might have cause for sadness because of the poor quality of the state’s general “happiness” factors, such as climate, tax rates, air quality and traffic congestion.

New York was the least happy state, according to the study. The purported happiest state is Louisiana, followed by Hawaii, Florida, Tennessee and Arizona.
