Here's what the Gallup Poll said about Fort Smith:
> Well-being index score: 62.9
> Obesity: 28.9%
> Median household income: $35,965
> Adult population with high school diploma or higher: 82.8%
According to the Census Bureau, the median household income in the Fort Smith metro area was $35,965 in 2011, one of just 15 metro areas with a median figure below $36,000. One reason for this may have been the limited education of many residents. As of 2011, only 15.7% of adults had at least a bachelor’s degree, among the lower figures in the nation and well below the 28.5% nationwide. But while many residents of Fort Smith lack a college education, they also are surprisingly more likely to enjoy their jobs. More than 91% of residents were satisfied with their work, and nearly 88% feel they work in a trusting environment, among the highest proportions in the country. Fort Smith is one of the worst metro areas for almost all major factors considered by Gallup, but ranks as one of the highest for quality of residents’ work environments.
