A new study is out which determines the USA’s “Smiliest” cities. Where does Las Vegas rank? Let’s dig into the numbers…
Shiny Smile Veneers recently conducted a nationwide study. They compiled over 15,000 Instagram photos from America’s fifty largest cities to determine the nation’s most smiley city, just in time for World Smile Day on October 7th.
What they found in those photos is that overall, 43% of the people were smiling. Las Vegas placed slightly above the national average, with 45.8% of the folks smiling in the photos. We ranked at #17.
The researchers used “geotagging” to determine where the Instagram photo was posted. So, this means that photos posted in Sin City were not necessarily those from people who actually live here in Southern Nevada. I would bet our ranking was determined more by tourists posting on that social media platform.
Another thing the study found was that there was no particular regional winner. In fact, of the fifty cities, only 8 showed 50% or more of the pictures with people smiling in them. So, at least we made the top 20. You can take a look at all the findings on ShinySmileVeneers.com.
Let’s take a look at the five cities with the fewest number of smiling people in Instagram photos, and the top 5 cities as well.
