February 13th, 2017 – On This Day in Sioux Falls History, we were rated as the #1 city in the Annual Gallup Well-Being Poll. The Gallup Poll utilizes telephone interviews to ask nearly 200,000 Americans each year questions pertaining to what have become known as the five elements of well being: physical wellbeing, financial wellbeing, career wellbeing, social wellbeing and community wellbeing.


Mandatory minimums are in place to ensure that respondents to the polls are from a variety of ages, states, time zones, congressional districts and more. The interview is also available to be offered in Spanish.

Sioux Falls has consistently ranked in the top 5 -10 in the Gallup Poll. But our top score came on this exact day 5 years ago in 2017. Sioux Falls was recognized as the place in the nation where citizens felt they had the highest well being, taking into account their physical, financial, career, social, and community well being! That is pretty awesome stuff.

Of course this Gallup polls, what all of us knew all along… Sioux Falls rocks!
