Palm City is ranked as one of the “happiest towns” in Florida


Palm City

Can you guess which Treasure Coast town is ranked as one of the “happiest towns” in Florida?

Whether you are looking to make South Florida your permanent home, or are planning a seasonal residency, you will find that we Floridians love the accolades for our little towns on the Treasure Coast.

Just last week career experts Zippia® released their rankings for the “Happiest Towns in Florida” and Palm City made number 7, yeah! According the author, Chris Kolmar, “There’s a search that we are all on that dwarfs our job or career search — the search for happiness.

And as we all know, where we live and the job we have can all play a big part in our overall sense of contentment and happiness. For that reason, we took a dive into the most recent census data to help you identify which places in Florida have the biggest smile of them all.

On our happy data journey, we settled on seven criteria to help determine which Florida places are the happiest. The criteria include things like having insurance, owning a home, and having a job.”

Kolmar adds, “There’s nothing we’d rather do than measure happiness in the Sunshine State. There’s a bunch of different studies out there that try to measure what makes people truly happy.” He continues, “So what else besides money contributes to your happiness? Well we think the following certainly do:

  • Being well educated
  • Having a job
  • A short commute to work
  • Low cost of living
  • Having a family
  • Owning a home
  • And the poverty rate

That’s a ton of fun — and happiness — for the whole family, backed by science. The data all comes from the 2010-2014 American Community Survey.

After we decided on the criteria, we gathered the data for the 316 places in Florida with over 2,000 people.

We then ranked each place from one to 316 for each of the seven criteria with a score of one being the happiest.”

Kolmar adds these stats:

  • Population: 23,380
  • People Who Own Their Home: 70.5%
  • Married Adults: 60.6%”
