  • October 1, 2020

Happy and we know it

Zippia turned happiness into a science and scoured the country examining 600 cities to find those with all the ingredients for happiness:

  • Being well educated (Population with at least a bachelor’s degree)
  • Percent of households earning above $75,000
  • Median home prices
  • A short commute to work (Traffic = unhappiness)
  • Having a family (Getting, and staying married, has a ton of happiness benefits, on average)

Zippia listed Sioux Falls as the happiest city in South Dakota.
