When it comes to your well-being, you may wonder if where you live has any impact. Turns out, it might! The Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index measures how people feel about their daily lives and studies their health across five elements: purpose, social, financial, community, and physical.


After conducting more than 177,000 phone interviews with adults across the 50 states and the District of Columbia throughout 2015, the Index ranked them accordingly.

Think you know where folks feel the best about their lives? Take a look and find out if your happiness (or unhappiness) could be something you share with your fellow residents.
