Gallup Healthways Well-Being Index
The Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index® provides an unprecedented, real-time view of the public's well-being.
Gallup and Healthways have joined forces to lead the world in understanding the key factors that affect overall health and well-being, and what can be done to improve them. The survey is divided into six domains: emotional well-being, physical well-being, healthy behaviors, work environment, basic access and overall life evaluation.
Drawing upon data obtained from 1,000 in-depth surveys every day - as measured through the comprehensive
health management expertise of Healthways and Gallup's long tradition - the Well-Being Index is today's "voice of the people." It is the most ambitious effort ever undertaken to measure who is feeling good about life and who's in need of a helping hand.
A long-term commitment
Over the next 25 years, the Well-Being Index will collect and measure the daily pulse of the nation's well-being and provide best-in-class solutions for a healthier world. By helping Americans understand how work impacts life and health and conversely how life affects work and health, we can work together to improve well-being for a better way of life.
