Florida has garnered another No. 1 ranking on an online list, this one less than flattering.

WalletHub designated Florida as the most sinful state in the nation in a recently released survey.


The Sunshine State narrowly edged out California for the top spot. It measured categories including anger and hatred, jealousy, excesses and vices, greed, lust, vanity and laziness, according to the website.

Florida was ranked No. 1 in jealousy, No. 4 rank in vanity, No. 7 in laziness and No. 8 in lust.

The study used data ranging from crime rates and health data to Google searches and other measures of how Floridians spend their free time.

For example, to measure anger and hatred, the survey studied violent crime, bullying, hate crimes, sex offenders, number of maltreated children, hostile internet comments and the number of mass shootings, as well as other factors.

Jealousy was rated using data about thefts per capita and identity theft.

Under the excesses and vice category, obesity, smoking rates, drug overdose deaths and alcohol use, were studied as well as the number of fast food restaurants per capita.

Greed took into account the number of casinos and percentage of population with gambling disorders.

Lust included data about the teen birth rate, the number of times Floridians used Google to search for XXX entertainment and the average time spent on adult entertainment sites.

Vanity measured the number of beauty salons per capita, Google searches for plastic surgery and the amount of money per household spent on personal care products and services.

Laziness included data about the number of adults not exercising, average weekly hours worked, volunteer rate, daily time spent watching TV, high school graduation rates and share of youth not attending school.

The least sinful states in the country include Maine, North Dakota and Vermont, which is in the No. 50 spot.
