Well-being is a concept that captures the important aspects of how people feel about and experience their daily lives — encompassing more than just physical health or economic indicators, well-being includes five elements: purpose, social, financial, community, and physical.
Since 2008, Gallup and Healthways have partnered to understand the well-being of both individuals and populations through an ongoing assessment of Americans' health and well-being. By interviewing no fewer than 500 adults each day, the Well-Being Index gives leaders the ability to analyze and monitor U.S. residents' health and well-being on a continuous basis, allowing for unique insights on how to create the behavioral and environmental change necessary to improve well-being, lower healthcare costs and increase productivity.
With more than 2.5 million surveys fielded to date, the Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index® is the most proven, mature and comprehensive measure of well-being in the world. To read more about our methodology, click here.
