FOX 17 – Casinos, breweries and a jealous streak put Michigan at #9 on a list of top “sinful” states in the country.
The credit-analysis website WalletHub announced the results of their latest study Wednesday morning.
The study measured “Anger & Hate” (violent crimes), “Jealousy” (thefts), “Excesses & Vices” (drinking), “Avarice” (gambling disorders), “Lust” (porn usage), “Vanity” (beauty salons per capita) and “Laziness” (exercise rates). Michigan ranked #6 in Jealousy, #10 in Anger & Hate, #14 in Vanity and #15 in Laziness.
The top three in the list of Most Sinful States were not overly surprising – Nevada, Florida, California. #4 through #8 are (in order): Texas, Tennessee, Louisiana, Georgia and Illinois. Arizona comes in at #10.
Vermont is ranked as the “least sinful” state in the union, followed by Maine, North Dakota, Nebraska and Idaho.
