These are the happiest and unhappiest cities in the United States, 2020

The city of Fremont in California is home to the happiest people in America, according to a new WalletHub lifestyle survey, when compared with more than 180 of the largest U.S. cities. It was followed by Plano, TX (No. 2); San Jose, CA (No. 3); Irvine, CA (No. 4); and Madison, WI (No. 5).

Sioux Falls, SD; Huntington Beach, CA; Scottsdale, AZ; Santa Rosa, CA; and Pearl City (Hawaii) fill slots 16 through 10. To find the happiest cities in the United States, the personal-finance website compared more than 180 of the largest U.S. cities across 30 key indicators, ranging from depression, income growth, the amount of time spent on leisure every day, food insecurity, life expectancy, and adequate sleep. Three key areas were examined: emotional health and physical well-being; income and employment; and community and environment.

The unhappiest city on the list?

At the other end of the rankings, Detroit, Michigan, finished as the unhappiest city in the United States. The bottom five were rounded out by Charleston, West Virginia; Toledo, Ohio; Huntington, West Virginia; and Cleveland, Ohio.
