A recent research report indicates that Northern Californians are happier than Southern Californians. I wonder why?

Do Northern Californians have a better quality of life than Southern Californians?

Those living in the Central Valley appear to be happier than those living in L.A. or the Bay Area.

I would have to agree with this research report.

It does not make any sense. North - South California difference. Possibly because whose site i am. Think about your own sun. Your may be mentally ill, no one else would love him, not even tolerate him. But you do because it's your sun. same case here. you live in Northern California.

Or may happen for the climate,

or northern own gold mines.

The highest ranking (happiest) California counties according to that report: Stanislaus, San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara, and Orange.

The lowest ranking (most unhappy) California counties: Napa, Alameda, Contra Costa, Santa Clara, Kern, and Los Angeles. (I personally would have put San Francisco at the dead bottom since some of the people that live there seem to take pride in being miserable, but maybe that's just me...)

So, two of the "happiest" and "unhappiest" counties each are in SoCal. For this argument, I'll consider Santa Barbara and Kern part of SoCal since they are closer to L.A.'s greater sphere of influence. By contrast, NorCal has one "happy" county if you consider Stanislaus to be in the sphere of influence of the Sacramento region, but four "unhappy" counties.

So, Californians are either most or least happy in these mentioned metropolitan counties, according to the report.

Just found that interesting. But yes, rural northern California seems to have a larger swath of people who are happy with their lives than certain urban counties in the state.

That's pretty much tell you all you need to know about the usefulness of the report.

I know whenever I'm forced to navigate some inhibiting, Irvine Company Parc Lake Ranch Enclave, I'm overcome with the impulse to get out of my car and skip down the cul-de-sac, just like Pharrelle.

Gotta go south of Irvine for that.

Careful Pacific, expressing praise (and not disgust) for our area will get us labeled as not urbane despite our extremely urbane bona fides. Just sayin'.

Kind of get the idea that people who have something to do don't spend time answering surveys that turn into published "lists".
