Older Americans express satisfaction with their standard of living, worry less about money, and say they have enough money to do what they want to do – all at higher rates than those younger than 55.

Overall, older Americans have significantly higher well-being and thrive at significantly higher rates across all five elements of well-being as compared to their younger counterparts.

Hawaii retains its leadership position as the number one well-being state for older Americans by a significant margin, while West Virginia ranks last for the second consecutive year.
