If pursuing happiness is a life goal, you might want to consider moving to Plano, Texas. A new analysis by WalletHub has ranked it as the happiest city for 2019.

In a report released Monday, the personal finance site ranked the happiest cities in America based across three key dimensions — emotional and physical well-being, income and employment and community and environment — looking at 31 key indicators, ranging from depression rate to income growth.

Plano, about a half-hour drive north of Dallas, had solid scores in all three dimensions, with a seventh place ranking in emotional and physical well-being, sixth place ranking in income and employment and an eighth place ranking in community and environment.

Irvine, California, south of Los Angeles in Orange County, came in second place with a 14th place ranking in emotional and physical well-being, 11th place ranking in income and employment and an fifth place ranking in community and environment.

The third happiest city, Madison, Wisconsin, scored a third place ranking in emotional and physical well-being, 14th place ranking in income and employment and a seventh place ranking in community and environment.

These are the 10 happiest cities, according to WalletHub.
