measurement policy and interventions


It turns out Alpine County is the happiest place on earth. Well, at least the happiest place in California.

That’s according to data presented in former Speaker Anthony Rendon’s Select Committee on Happiness and Public Policy Outcomes on Wednesday. The data, explained by Oxford Professor Jan-Emmanuel De Neve and derived from the World Happiness Report, found the sparsely-populated county along the state’s Nevada border boasted the highest levels of happiness of any county in the state.
