WiLD Headlines

It’s hard to believe but it’s a reality that a third of Americans are sometimes having trouble making basic decisions due to the stress of the COVID-19 pandemic and other stresses they have going on in their lives. WalletHub released its report on 2022’s Happiest Cities in America.

In order to determine where people in America are happy with their lives, WalletHub compared more than 180 of the largest U.S. cities across 30 key indicators of happiness. The data set ranges from depression rate to income-growth rate to average leisure time spent per day.
