According to WalletHub’s latest study, Baltimore ranked as one of the happiest places to live in the United States, coming in at No. 130.
Don’t worry, be happy, because Baltimore ranked as one of the happiest places in the United States. WalletHub’s newest study found the top 150 of the largest cities in the country and ranked them based on happiness. The study aimed to illustrate that “we can either attain or merely aspire to a happy life, depending on where we choose to live.”
Three main dimensions were used: emotional and physical well-being, income and employment, and community and environment. Those categories were then separated into 30 key indicators of happiness — like emotional health, growth of income, and an individual’s ideal type of weather.
Baltimore had a total score of 45.07, ranking as No. 113 in emotional and physical well-being, No. 121 in income and employment, and No. 139 in community and environment.
No other cities in Maryland made the list. The happiest place in the United States to live is Fremont, California (77.55 total score), while Detroit, Michigan, came in last place with a total score of 27.78.
