The records: The 2011 Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index for Missouri broken down by city and congressional district.
Why you'd want them: The data here break down each state's happiness into six categories: life evaluation, mental health, physical health, healthy behavior, work environment and basic access. The report then takes this data and rates Missouri's overall well-being. According to the poll, Missouri is ranked at 43 — low on the nation's happiness scale.
Where you go to get the records: Go to well-beingindex.com/stateCongresDistrictRank.asp and then click "Missouri" and download the record.
How much it will cost: The information is free.
