Harris released its list of the "happiest" cities among the Top 10 markets in the United States, with Dallas-Fort Worth taking the top spot. The Poll found that 33 percent of people nationwide are "very happy." 38% of DFW residents responded that they were "very happy," placing us ahead of our Texas neighbor down Interstate 45, Houston, which was second at 36 percent.


Harris said that in Dallas-Fort Worth, residents are more likely to say their spiritual beliefs are a positive influence on their lives (78 percent), and that most of us rarely worry about our health (59 percent).

Philadelphia came in at number 3 with 34% with Atlanta, Los Angeles, NYC, Washington D.C., Chicago, and Boston close behind. San Francisco rounded out the list at just 28% of residents listed as "very happy."
