The cities were ranked based on several indicators, including family, marriage or emotional life, health conditions, social security, income, environment, education, etc.

Big data analysis reveals that 70% of Lhasa citizens felt 'extremely happy' in the past year, whose main concerns with the family (62.12%), marriage or emotional life (52.31%), and health conditions (46.92%).
