Right about now, residents of the luxury apartments in Fremont, CA, should rejoice. Why, you might ask? Because as WalletHub recently pointed out in survey of the happiness of American cities, Fremont ranked at a respectable number four on the list out of some 182 cities that were surveyed in total. Residents of Fremont enjoy great levels of emotional/physical well-being, income & employment, and deep sense of community along with respect for their environment. What puts Fremont so high on the list, especially when there were so many other contenders in competition? That’s exactly what we’ll be taking a look at today, as we examine some of the reasons why Fremont has taken its citizens’ happiness to the next level.

What Makes Fremont So Happy?

As noted, Fremont is fourth on WalletHub’s list of Happiest Cities in the US, only narrowly edged out by Madison, WI, Irvine, CA, and Plano, TX. The criteria WalletHub used in their survey were clear, as they used the power of positive psychology research to examine “each city based on 31 key indicators of happiness, ranging from depression rate to income-growth rate to average leisure time spent per day.”

This research culminated in scores for well being, income, community, environment, etc., and tallied up along with their 31 relevant metrics, helped them arrive at their overall rankings. You can learn more about the details of their methodology by reading over that survey for yourself, but one question remains: what factors influenced Fremont in scoring so high in these individual categories?

Theories abound, but you’ll find a rather convincing case made by the Foundation for Economic Education, in their article Guess Why Fremont, California Is the Happiest City in America. As the FEE surmises, Fremont’s combination of big and small business friendliness has led to an environment where the best aspects of capitalism can thrive, and that “rising tide” raises all ships, leading to prosperity for a large segment of the city’s populace:

“Fremont’s prosperity today is evident in the economic numbers. The unemployment rate is just 2.6 percent, and the median household income is $114,000. Highly-skilled immigrants continue to flow from East and Central Asia: over 45 percent of the city’s population is foreign-born.”

Combined with that economic opportunity is a diverse population of keen minds, and an educational system that promotes the best from those who live in Fremont. In totality, these factors go a long way in giving Fremont a leg up over other cities, and make it a great place to set down roots and start your further adventures in life.
