When’s the last time you committed one of the seven deadly sins? If you live in Florida, chances are it wasn’t too long ago.
The financial website WalletHub ranked the most sinful states in the country, and Florida came in No. 2. We only trailed Nevada, home of Sin City itself.
To generate its list, WalletHub compared each state on various metrics that represent the categories of anger and hatred, jealousy, excesses and vices, greed, lust, vanity and laziness.
Florida was No. 1 for most jealous, owing to a high number of thefts, identity thefts and fraud complaints per capita.
We’re No. 4 in vanity (they looked at beauty salons per capita, consumer spending on personal care products and Google searches for plastic surgery), and No. 4 in lust (they considered teen birth rate, prostitution arrests and search volume and time spent on adult entertainment websites).
If you’re feeling pious and want to live in one of the least sinful states, bundle up and head to Vermont, Maine or North Dakota.
