2023 Happiest Cities in the San Francisco Bay Area

Measuring Happiness is something that pollsters and social scientists have attempted to do time and time again. WalletHub has done this every year with a cross-sample of America to figure out what they call the Happiest Cities in America. They measure 3 critical factors and attribute 10 conditions to each factor creating a 30-question questionnaire. Each of these questions are weighted and the results are ranked and compiled into this list.

What's important to us is rather than focusing on individual cities we generalize the area these cities are in and create general maps of areas that are becoming desirable or on the decline. This year, 3 Bay Area cities made the top 10 list, and if we expand this to the top 20 the bay area takes up 4 slots. If you include our Los Angeles and Northwest team we serve 7 of 20 happiest cities! 

The cities in BOLD are areas we serve.
