A research group has ranked the top-ten “Most Sinful States” in the United States, and Georgia made the top-ten list.
Wallet Hub ranked the Peach State as the 7th most sinful state in the country.
The personal finance website says they examined data on 43 indicators such as violent crimes per capita, excessive drinking, obesity, percentage of smokers, casinos per capita, and more. They then broke those indicators down into seven dimensions which include anger & hatred, jealousy, excesses & vices, greed, lust, vanity, and laziness (commonly referred to as the “Seven Deadly Sins).
Each of the dimensions were then given a maximum value of 14.3 points depending on data outcomes.
Georgia ranked number 2 for “jealousy” and number 7 for “lust”. While Alabama didn’t make the top-ten list overall, it make the list as number five in the nation for the most time spent online looking at “adult entertainment sites.”
Nevada led all states in the top spot, followed by Florida, California, Texas, Tennessee, Louisiana, Georgia, Illinois, Michigan, and Arizona rounding out the Top Ten.
