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.
