Where to live well in the USA: 10 of the happiest American cities

Just like a place of work and occupation, a place of residence can be of great importance for the quality of your life, writes Money Talks News.

Where do the happiest people live in the United States? To answer this question, researchers at the Zippia website decided to “turn happiness into a science” and studied in which US cities residents earn a lot, spend little time in traffic jams and most often live in marriage. The presence of higher education was also taken into account.

Although it may be embarrassing for someone that marriage is on this list, studies show that people in a marriage are usually happier than others. However, it is worth noting that marriage alone does not bring happiness (getting divorced, many can feel much happier). However, if the family is happy, it is very important for mood and mental health.

For the threshold income level, an amount of 75 a year was chosen - a study by Purdue University showed that this amount met basic needs and freed people from the traps of deep financial instability.

Results? According to the indicators of happiness, medium-sized cities were in better positions compared to small towns. Apparently, happiness needs space. Here are 10 places that researchers have chosen.
