A new study conducted by WalletHub used 43 indicators of immorality to rank each state in the U.S. according to their sinfulness.

Analysts used information like crime statistics and substance abuse data to calculate the scoring, and asked a panel of experts to weigh in on the results based on the seven deadly sins: anger/hatred, jealousy, excesses/vices, greed, lust, vanity and laziness.

Arizona evidently has some jealousy issues. Their No. 7 spot for "vices" is what landed them in the top 10 overall, and their No. 14 ranking in the "anger and hatred" category didn't help.

One of the top indicators used by researchers to determine jealousy was thefts per capita. Last month, Tucson saw 156 car break-ins or thefts in just 15 days.
