Poll: Midwesterners are depressed, hate their jobs

Indiana is among one of the saddest states in the nation, according to a recent Gallup poll.

The poll found much of the Midwest qualifies as a ‘sadness belt’ because residents are depressed, obese and hate their jobs.

Indiana came in 42nd out of 50, down four spots from 2011.

Gallup looked at six categories to determine sadness. Things like life evaluation, emotional health, work environment, physical health, healthy behaviors and basic access were all considered.

West Virginia is the saddest state in the Union, the poll revealed.

Hawaii came out on top as the least sad state.
