Best and Worst Well-Being States

Jennifer Rudloff

The Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index® is the first-ever daily assessment of U.S. residents' health and well-being. Through interviewing at least 1,000 U.S. adults every day, the Well-Being Index provides an in-depth view of our nation's health and well-being. Each year we report on our findings at a city, state and congressional district level. To learn more about well-being where you live, click here to explore the 2011 well-being reports.
