Infographic of the Day: Just as they did in 2008 and 2009, Gallup spent each day last year phoning up 1,000 random people from across the country to ask them how they’re doing (among other, more specific questions about good and bad habits).
The survey results were compiled into the 2010 Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index Map, which breaks down America’s quality of life by district. Click here to get interactive with the inforgraphic.
According to the Index, America’s happiest person would be “a tall, Asian-American, observant Jew who is at least 65 and married, has children, lives in Hawaii, runs his own business and has a household income of more than $120,000 a year.”
Bonus: The New York Times found him.
