LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Lincoln may be the happiest place in the United States.
The capital city of Nebraska topped 188 other metropolitan areas in the 2012 Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index.
The survey index is calculated from scores in six measures of well-being. Gallup surveyed nearly 354,000 respondents ages 18 and older.
Nebraska came in at No. 7 among the states, one spot higher than in 2011. Omaha came in at 27th in the metropolitan category.
