If you're a college student that loves to party, these stats may give you the feeling that New England is boring or "not cool". But when you look at the data that was used, it's less about the vibrant party scene and more about basic morale.

WalletHub recently used seven pieces of 'sinful behavior' data to come up with their list of the states that have the most moral growing to do.

Heads up, the data used is quite different from the original seven deadly sins. Theirs was based on anger and hatred, jealousy, excesses and vices, greed, lust, vanity and laziness.

Here's the ranking of Maine, with #1 being the most sinful. You will see that we rank quite low when compared to the rest of the country.

  • 39th – Anger & Hatred
  • 47th – Jealousy
  • 23rd – Excesses & Vices
  • 30th – Greed
  • 47th – Lust
  • 47th – Vanity
  • 31st – Laziness

Maine ranked at #47 with our neighbors in New Hampshire also scoring quite impressively at #49, only to be beat out by Wyoming. Vermont, Massachusetts, Connecticut, and Rhode Island also all ranked in the top 15 least sinful states in the nation list.

It was kind of ironic to see Nevada at #1, as Las Vegas is considered the "Sin City".

In closing, each state has their own great qualities, communities, and residents and vise versa. This list just shows the states that likely need more growing when it comes to the "seven elements of sinful behavior".
