Poll: WI Slightly Above Average In Being Healthy, Happy

by

MADISON, Wis. (WTAQ) - Wisconsinites are a little better than average when it comes to being happy and healthy. That’s according to the Gallup-Healthways Well Being Index for 2009. The Gallup polling firm interviewed 8,000 Wisconsinites – and over 350,000 Americans in all – to learn about their general life situations, emotional and physical factors, work environments, and other health-related concerns. Wisconsin’s total index was 66 – just one-tenth higher than the national index of 65.9. The state’s well-being index rose by one-tenth of a point from the previous year, while the national figure stayed the same.

Hawaii is the state with the highest well-being, and 2 of our neighbors are in the Top 10 – Minnesota at #4, and Iowa at #5. In general, the states with the best well-being are in the Midwest and West. 7 of the 11 worst states are in the South.
