Many say happiness is a state of mind.

But it appears that some states collectively are happier than others.

According to a recent wallethub.com study, Utah is the happiest state in America.

Minnesota came in second and Hawaii rounds out the top three.

The personal finance site weighed a number of factors including depression rates, amount of work hours and adequate sleep.

Texas ranked 38th nationally.

And West Virginia came in 50th.
