Fort Worth is a Happier City than Dallas According to a New Study 0 698

Fort Worth is one of the happiest cities in the country, but that doesn’t surprise us! In a new study, it ranked #42 overall and earned a higher score than Dallas, which came in at #68.

In this study, more than 180 US cities were ranked based on the scores they got in three different categories: emotional and physical wellbeing, income and employment, and community and environment.

The researchers looked at things like the divorce rate, weather, and average leisure time of the residents to come up with a community and environment score. To determine an income and employment score, researchers looked at metrics like the income growth rate, the unemployment rate, and the poverty rate.

Fort Worth earned better income and employment and community and environment scores than Dallas, which is why it ranked higher.

There’s so much to do and see in Fort Worth, so we’re not surprised that our wonderful city received such a high community score! Let us know what you think about this study in the comments section below.

Fort Worth Residents Completely Reject Possible City Logo Change 0 1056

Brian Bird is new to the Fort Worth City Council. He represents Southwest Fort Worth and recently made a recommendation to try and boost the national profile of the city in hopes of gaining interest from Fortune 500 companies seeking to relocate or build new operations. His suggestion? Remove the longhorn from the city’s logo.

It’s safe to say that right now Mr. Bird is not the most popular City Councilperson in Fort Worth. NBC DFW took a quick online poll which was spread around Facebook by Fort Worth residents and pages like “Fort Worth: Better Side of the Metroplex”. The response was resounding, 94% of those who voted rejected the idea of removing the longhorn in hopes of appeasing Fortune 500 companies and getting them to move their businesses here.

Fort Worth is home to the the headquarters for American Airlines and D.R. Horton from the Fortune 500 list and to several other companies such as XTO Energy, Cash America International, BNSF Railway, GM Financial, Galderma, Niagra Conservation Corporation, Pier 1 Imports – and we recently got a huge coup when Facebook built their newest data center here.
