Gallup put out a well-being index score for U.S. states recently. The data was based on daily surveys done from January to December 2012 calculating on a scale of 0 to 100 (100 being ideal well-being) areas such as emotional health, physical health, healthy behavior, outlook on life, job satisfaction, and work environment.
Want take a guess as to which state ranked #1? Go on, I bet you can guess.
Yes, that’s right. Hawaii. I believe my well-being would be pretty high if I lived in Hawaii.
But I shouldn’t complain because Colorado came in at #2, then Minnesota (#3), Utah (#4) and Vermont (#5). At the bottom were Arkansas (#46), Tennessee (#47), Mississippi (#48), Kentucky (#49) and lastly West Virginia (#50).
Here’s a map of the U.S. and the rankings. How is your well-being?
