Feeling Good About Life in Lancaster
Lancaster – both the City and County – took top billing in the Gallup/Healthways Well-Being Index released in March, beating out 189 other communities across the nation. This is a ranking worth celebrating! The index, which has been conducted since 2008, measures basic elements that contribute to health, happiness and productivity, including work, social networks, personal economics, personal health and resident engagement. Importantly, this survey is based on the feedback from local residents.
To compile the index, Gallup surveys 1,000 adults daily across the nation. Lancaster bested Charlottesville, VA; Ann Arbor, MI; Provo, UT; and Boulder, CO to top the City Composite Rankings.
