The city in question is Columbia, Maryland, which ranks second on WalletHub's index of the 182 happiest U.S. cities. When looking at the individual scores for each of the three dimensions analyzed, the picture portrayed changes quite a bit. For example, Columbia is ranked as one of the worst cities when it comes to income and employment, a category encompassing poverty rates, job satisfaction, job security, weekly work hours or underemployment rate, but ranks fifth and third in terms of emotional and physical well-being and community and environment, respectively.
The top city in the latter category, which includes separation and divorce rate, hate crime incidence and leisure time spent per day, is Casper, Wyoming, coming in 79th place overall.
Fremont, on the other hand, is not only the number one happiest city in the U.S. according to WalletHub, but also scored top marks in the well-being category, which takes into consideration issues like depression and suicide rates, adequate sleep, sports participation and food insecurity.
