Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index Ties Historical High, April Shows Americans Sustaining Well-Being Recovery

“Please be advised that Gallup and Healthways, Inc. today released the Gallup-Healthways Monthly U.S. Well-Being Report for April 2010. The Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index(TM) (WBI) was a tie (63.3) for all-time overall well-being in April, revealing a continued recovery of American well-being despite continuing challenges and high unemployment. The only other time in 28 months of measurement the WBI reached 67 was in August 2009. April's score reflects improvement in well-being for more than 8 million Americans since the low (63.3) posted mid-recession in December 2008. This improvement was created through upticks in five of the six components of well-being, including record highs in the Emotional Health Index and elements of the Work Environment Index.
