SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- A new poll shows a majority of Utahns consider themselves happy, contradicting a recent report from a national mental health organization.

Some 92 percent of survey respondents queried for the Deseret Morning News say they are happy. Five percent said they are unhappy or somewhat depressed and 2 percent consider themselves "very" depressed, according to a copyright story in the newspaper Monday.

In November a first-ever national review from Mental Health America ranked Utah 51st out 51 states and the District of Columbia for its levels of depression and patient treatment outcomes.

The statewide poll by Dan Jones and Associates queried 411 people between Dec. 12 and 15. The survey has a 5 percent margin of error.
