Wilmington has been named the happiest city in Delaware, according to Zippia.com.
Their article “The 10 Happiest Cities for 2020” ranked cities based off the following criteria:
- Being well educated (Population with at least a bachelor’s degree)
- Percent of households earning above $75,000
- Median home prices
- A short commute to work (Traffic = unhappiness)
- Having a family (Getting, and staying married, has a ton of happiness benefits, on average)
Over 600 cities were evaluated, and ultimately mid-sized communities beat out large cities.
The same criteria were also used to determine the happiest city in each state, which earned Wilmington the title!
