Collierville Named Fifth Happiest City in Tennessee

Posted By on Wed, Nov 19, 2014 at 4:57 PM


Using a loose definition of "city," a compilation gathered earlier this month by named the top 40 happiest cities in Tennessee — one of which being Collierville within the top five.

Rankings were determined on only seven factors: restaurants per capita, crime rate, average commute time, income, divorce rate, percentage of income dedicated to housing, and percentage of residents who left work before 5 a.m.

Five suburbs and towns of the Memphis metropolitan area made the list. Collierville came in highest at No. 5. Bartlett arrived at No. 16, Atoka ranked No. 25, Munford was No. 35, and Millington squeezed into the list at No. 39.

According to the survey, Millington also had the highest percentage of divorced residents in the Memphis suburbs and towns that made the list, at a combined 29.4 percent.

Earlier this year, Collierville was also named the top neighborhood in Memphis for cheaters. Bartlett and Millington also made that top-ten list.

Oak Ridge, town of 29,000, was crowned champion of happiness in the state.
