News Release from Gallup Healthways April 15, 2014

The Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index® is the preeminent source for well-being data in the United States and globally. A definitive measure and empirical database of real-time changes in well-being throughout the world, the Well-Being Index provides insights needed to improve health, increase productivity, and lower healthcare costs within any community.

The analysis contained in this individual state report contains six years of longitudinal data on Americans’ perceptions of their well-being within this state. It includes topics such as physical and emotional health, healthy behaviors, work environment, social and community factors, financial security, and access to necessities such as food, shelter, and healthcare. The report includes analyses of these topics and provides a composite well-being rank and score for each community.

Business, healthcare, community, and government leaders leverage Well-Being Index data on the factors proven to impact well-being to inform and prioritize tangible policies to help their populations thrive and grow. It is an invaluable source of benchmark and comparability data by industry, occupation, city, state, and country. As communities and organizations increasingly put well-being on their dashboards as a crucial business metric, the Well-Being Index can confirm that investments in health and quality of life can be measurably improved and have substantive impact on both improving performance and reducing costs.

With more than 2 million surveys completed, the Well-Being Index is the world’s largest dataset on well-being, and it has garnered significant national and international recognition. Over the next decades, Gallup and Healthways will continue to survey millions of individuals around the globe, advancing the science of well-being and providing timely and in-depth information to leaders who are trying to solve some of the most pressing healthcare challenges of our time.
