Well-being in the Nation Measures
Ever wonder how we could:
• Be the wealthiest country in the world yet have one of the highest rates of child poverty?
• Have the “best” health care system in the world yet have such terrible health outcomes that youth today can expect to live shorter lives that their parents?
• Have so many means for social connection yet suffer from epidemics of social isolation and deaths of despair?
The Well-being in the Nation Measures show connections between social conditions, health, community, and well-being. Created with 100+ organizations and communities and supported by the National Committee on Vital and Health Statistics.
Explore these simple, powerful measures to understand the big picture of our well-being as a nation. Dig into the data to see what shapes well-being for different groups in your community. Connect with others, especially those affected by inequities, to understand, develop solutions, and act. Together, we can strive to improve well-being for everyone in the nation.
