Rightmove reveals the Happy At Home Index for 2013

This is old news… click here to see where has been named the happiest place to live in Great Britain in 2014!

Rightmove’s Happy At Home Index is a unique, nationwide insight into the emotive relationship we have with the place we call home. Rightmove surveyed nearly 40,000 people asking them to rank 12 distinct factors about where they live, covering feelings towards our ‘property’, our ‘home’ and our ‘community’.

Rightmove director Miles Shipside comments:


“As a nation obsessed with property, our homes represent far more than simple bricks and mortar. Rightmove’s Happy At Home Index looks to capture how the British public truly feels about ‘home’ and gives us a view of the happiest places in the UK as rated by those who know best – the people who live there”


The Happy At Home Index for 2013 found that Harrogate is the UK’s happiest place to call home, and that Northerners are overall happier where they live than Southerners. However, beyond these headlines, the HAHI also reveals individual stories for the 110 locations and 11 regions covered by the survey, as well as the 12 separate categories that the public were asked to rate.
