Gallup and Sharecare have just released their 2017 Well-Being Index report. The Well-Being Index measures well-being in America across five different factors: financial, purpose, physical, social, and community. The national Well-Being Index was 61.5 in 2017. Physical health and community happiness both improved across the nation compared to 2016.
Vermont tied with South Dakota, with an Index score of 64.1, for the happiest state in 2017. This doesn’t come as a huge shock if you’ve ever lived or visited Vermont!
Our goal at SouthFace Village is to create a happy place for you to live and play.
Below is the full list of the Top 10 States of 2017 according to the Well-Being Index:
