Women's Well-Being: Behind the Series

Jennifer Rudloff

Think you know the happiest woman in America? Well we do! Based on findings from the Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index®, the Healthways Science Team identified distinct characteristics that contribute to high well-being for America’s largest demographic, Baby Boomer Women. In a four part series – USA Today found ‘the happiest woman in America’ and use her life as an example as they explore what well-being means in work, health, and relationships for this generation of boomers.

I wanted to take some time to dive in to the data behind the series and discuss it's implications and associated action steps for each topic:
