Chicago ranks 2nd in list of cities where you can be happier with less money

CHICAGO -- They say money can't buy you happiness. New studies support this claim.

One poll says being happy in Chicago doesn't mean you have to be rich.

Gallup and a personal health company called Sharecare figured out how much money it takes to be happy in major cities.

In Chicago, happiness peaks at $54,000 a year.

New York and Los Angeles required $105,000, which is twice as much for the same level of happiness.

Atlanta requires the least amount, with $42,000 a year.

This is all according to interviews with Americans in twelve metro areas.
