Do you live in one of the happiest cities in America?

Atlantans are, apparently, not the happiest of the bunch. 

That’s according to personal finance website WalletHub’s 2017 “Happiest Places to Live” ranking, which listed the metro at No. 83 on the list of 150 cities.

To come up with the results, analysts at WalletHub compared the nation’s 150 largest cities across three key dimensions: emotional/physical well being, income/employment and community/environment.
