Why happiness is a postcode lottery

Powys in Wales tops the list of 273 districts, with Edinburgh apparently the most miserable place in Britain.
Eight of the top 10 districts with the highest levels of wellbeing are in Scotland or the north of England. Not such good news for us though as we are number 4 in the least cheerful places apparently. Can you work out why? What makes a place a happy one? If we get time I may discuss this next week. See the Independents article on this here.

1. Edinburgh
2. Cynon Valley and Rhondda
3. Amber Valley and north east Derbyshire
4. Clydesdale; Cumnock and Doon Valley; Kyle and Carrick
5. Swansea
