Top 10 Happiest States Based on Online Reviews in Each State

Late last year, we gathered some data across several Google+ Local business pages to find out which states were the happiest relative to the online reviews of local businesses in each state. These were the results:

1. Hawaii

2. Maine

3. Vermont

4. Idaho

5. Massachusetts

6. Oregonoregon

7. California

8. Utah

9. New Hampshire

10. Washington

We also noticed that there was an increase in 1-star reviews beginning in August of last year, possibly due to the growing ubiquity of mobile reviewing capabilities on smartphones.
