Shreveport-Bossier on List of Happiest Cities in USA
According to a recent study by Harvard University, Shreveport-Bossier City is among the top five 'happiest cities in the USA'. And, amazingly, not only is 'The SBC' on the list, but all of the top five towns are right here in Louisiana!
The study by Harvard, in association with the Vancouver School, took into account data from a federal (CDC) study, plus a number of categories based on demographics and income.
The top five cities (in order) on the list are Lafayette, Houma, Shreveport-Bossier City, Baton Rouge and Alexandria.
Meanwhile, the unhappiest places list was topped by Scranton, Erie and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Coincidentally, as the study noted, the least happy places in the USA are areas that vote heavily Democratic.
