I know a lot of people who came to Sioux Falls for a stop in their career and ended up never leaving. They were happy living here. That might explain the latest ranking the city received.

Wallethub did a study and found that Sioux Falls was the fifth happiest city in the country. Hooray!

The study was based on something called "positive-psychology research" that looked at various factors like emotional and physical well-being, income, employment, community and environment.

Nearby cities that made the list included Minneapolis and St. Paul, MN came in at 24 and 25 respectively (because they are basically the same town?).

Omaha ranked 51st.
