Georgia comes in at No. 19 in a new ranking of happiest states in the US WalletHub looked at 31 key metrics in three main catagories for this study. Georgia finished No. 7 in community and environment. The state was No. 16 in work environment, finishing low in the metric of "income growth." Georgia was No. 25 in emotional and physical well-being, ranking 47th in sports participation.

They say happiness runs in circular motions, but apparently that circle isn’t 285 and the happiness running through Atlanta pales in comparison to dozens of other cities.

At least according to a new report released by personal finance website, WalletHub, which ranked the happiest cities in the nation.

Atlanta just barely squeaked into the top 100. Coming in at No. 91, the report gave the city overall poor marks on a variety of factors tied to happiness.

Now, before you find yourself getting cranky, keep in mind that just last fall, a separate WalletHub study said Georgia is the 17th happiest state in the country.

With that in mind, here’s a look at some of WalletHub’s reasoning for the recent rankings. The researchers compared more than 180 of the country’s largest cities across “key indicators of happiness.” The indicators were separated into three main categories: emotional and physical well being; income and employment and community and environment.

Within those three categories, WalletHub looked at 30 factors, including income-growth rate, leisure time, physical health index, job security and satisfaction, acres of parkland and ideal weather. See the full list of metrics here.

“What people might not realize is that where you live may also determine how happy you are,” the WalletHub report reads. “But not everywhere in the U.S. experiences a uniform level of happiness. As this study aims to illustrate, moving to a certain city may help you be more content.”
