Top 10 US States by Well-Being Index

It’s good to live in Colorado…  and a few more states as well.  Colorado finished in the top 10th for the ninth straight year, and has joined Hawaii as the only two states to earn this distinction.


The Well-Being Index is calculated on a scale of 0 to 100, where 0 represents the lowest possible well-being and 100 represents the highest possible well-being. In most cases, a difference of 0.5 to 1.0 points in the Well-Being Index score between any two states represents a statistically significant gap.

For the nation overall, the Well-Being Index score was 62.1 in 2016, a statistically meaningful improvement from the 61.7 and the 61.6 measured in 2015 and 2014, respectively.
