INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – A new study from professors at Harvard and the Vancouver School says Gary, Indiana ranks among the unhappiest cities in the country.

The happiest cities in the United States all come from Louisiana. The five happiest cities, based off demographics and income, are Lafayette, Houma, Shreveport-Bossier City, Baton Rouge and Alexandria.

The study used data from a CDC survey called the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System, among other sources, and adjusted for age, sex, race, income and other factors.

New York City, Scranton, Pennsylvania, Erie, Pennsylvania, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and Gary, Indiana are among the unhappiest cities in the country.

Other happy cities included Charlotte, North Carolina and Naples, Florida.
