‘Well-Being’ in Fort Collins and Loveland Ranks 5th Best In Country

Fort Collins Loveland Well-Being
Beano, TSM

The Fort Collins/Loveland area is one of the healthiest and happiest places in the country, at least according to results from a recent Gallup Poll. We ranked number-five on their list that ranked the “Well-Being Index score” in 189 metropolitan areas.

It’s good to be us.

The Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index score is an average of six sub-indexes, which individually examine life evaluation, emotional health, work environment, physical health, healthy behaviors, and access to basic necessities. The overall score and each of the six sub-index scores are calculated on a scale from 0 to 100, where a score of 100 represents the ideal. Gallup and Healthways have been tracking these measures daily since January 2008.
