A recent national study ranks Cape Cod as number 2 on the list of “happiest” places to live and work in the USA. It is one of only a handful of metro areas where a majority of residents report having enough money to do everything they want. Just 6.6% of area residents live in poverty, one of the lowest rates nationwide. Well-educated populations tend to be more financially stable, and report greater well-being. In the Cape Cod area, 40.1% of adults have at least a bachelor’s degree, one of the highest educational attainment rates of any metro area. Affluent, college-educated people often have an easier time reaching their personal goals. When asked, “in the past 12 months, have you reached most of your goals,” over 60% of respondents said yes, the sixth highest such percentage of all metro areas reviewed.
