Our lovely Scottsdale made a cool list this morning! According to WalletHub, Scottsdale is the 9th happiest city in the United States!
Here is the list of the top 10:
- Plano, Texas
- Irvine, California
- Madison, Wisconsin
- Fremont, California
- Huntington Beach, California
- Fargo, North Dakota
- Grand Prairie, Texas
- San Jose, California
- Scottsdale, Arizona
- San Francisco, California
Phoenix came in at #127, Glendale at #104, Mesa at #75, Peoria at #44, Tempe at #39, Chandler at #33 and Gilbert at #21! Kind of an interesting list huh?!
The idea of this study was to prove that location is important overall.
"For years, researchers have studied the science of happiness and found that its key ingredients include a positive mental state, healthy body, strong social connections, job satisfaction and financial well-being."
Each city was looked at based on a few things - "ranging from depression rate to income-growth rate to average leisure time spent per day"
Question is, do you agree with the results of this?
