ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — If you want to improve your sense of well-being, leave the Lower 48.

A new report ranking all 50 states based on residents' sense of well-being puts Hawaii at No. 1, followed by Alaska, which held the top spot last year.

Hawaii has been No. 1 in the poll five times since 2008.

The survey from Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index had Montana, Colorado and Wyoming rounding out the rest of the top five.

The survey listed the bottom five as Indiana, Ohio, Oklahoma, Kentucky and West Virginia.

That's a familiar spot for West Virginia, which has been last in the rankings for the past seven years. Kentucky has been No. 49 during the same time.

The State of American Well-Being: 2015 State Rankings report was compiled from a non-scientific telephone survey of residents across the country.
