Mapping well-being

The NYTimes is offering stunning maps of the 2010 Gallup well-being indicators. The shot above shows the composite map combining all 20 indicators.  Facing brutal facts, I'll point out that the lightest yellow shows respondents reporting the lowest well-being, and only one state has all its congressional districts showing that lightest, lowest level.

That said, the map set is fascinating, letting viewers choose separate indicators for learning, stress, happiness, depression, health problems, high cholesterol, diabetes, obesity, job satisfaction, work environment, smoking, exercise, fruits/vegetables, community satisfaction, community improvement, nighttime safety, inadequate food, inadequate shelter, dental visits, and health insurance.  Do check it out!
