I know Chicago is NOT ALL OF Illinois, but recently it was released that the city is more violent than ever, even surpassing the Al Capone era of crime. So it's not surprising that a recent survey just named Illinois one of the top ten sinful states in the nation right now ranking it at number eight.

So how sinful is Illinois? According to Wallethub, the state ranks overall with a 50.38 rating. Illinois comes in at number 7 with anger & hatred, number eleven for jealousy, number 27 for excesses & vices, 36 for greed, and 24 for lust.

In order to determine the states that most give in to their desires, WalletHub compared the 50 states across 47 key indicators of immoral or illicit behavior. Our data set ranges from violent crimes per capita to excessive drinking to the share of the population with gambling disorders.
