FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM) – North Texans are the happiest people in the country, according to a new poll that looked at happiness factors in America’s 10 largest cities.

The Harris Poll showed that on average about 33 percent of people living in the country’s biggest cities are very happy.

However, North Texans scored 5 percent higher on the survey, with 38 percent people living in the D/FW metroplex qualifying as very happy, according to the poll results.

Participants responded to 11 statements to determine their level of happiness.  “My relationship with friends bring me happiness,” and “I have positive relationships with my family members,” are examples of some of the poll questions.

D/FW residents were the most likely of those polled to say they are guided by their spiritual beliefs.  They were also the least likely to worry about their heath.  D/FW respondents were the least likely to agree that they have positive relationships with family members.

Residents from the following cities also participated in the study – with Houston residents finishing in the second spot and San Francisco in the 10th.

  • Houston, TX (36% “very happy”)
  • Philadelphia, PA (34% “very happy”)
  • Atlanta, GA (34% “very happy”)
  • Los Angeles, CA (33% “very happy”)
  • NYC Metro, NY (33% “very happy”)
  • Washington, D.C. (33% “very happy”)
