A new, massive study of Americans' attitudes has found that Boulder is home to the happiest, healthiest people in the nation. A Gallup-Healthways Well-Being index — which analyzed interviews with more than 353,000 Americans last year — asked people to assess their jobs, finances, health, emotional state of mind and communities.
Boulder ranked No. 1 overall, No. 1 in work experience, No. 4 in healthy behaviors, No. 7 in physical health, No. 10 in access to basic things needed for a healthy life, and No. 27 in emotional health.
