Gallup and Sharecare have released the State of American Well-Being: 2016 Community Well-Being Rankings report, which highlights important trends in health and well-being within communities across the nation.
Naples-Immokalee-Marco Island, FL, tops the rankings for a second consecutive year. Barnstable Town, MA was number two, followed by Santa Cruz-Watsonville, CA.
Many high well-being communities hail from California (seven in the top 25), Colorado (three), Texas (three), Florida (two) and Virginia (two).
Communities are uniquely positioned to promote well-being improvement by transforming policies and environment so that people move naturally, eat wisely, connect, and have the right outlook—all of which can lead to living longer, better.
