Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index for Spokane

Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index – Findings: City, State, and Congressional District Well-Being Reports.

Go to the link, click on Washington and page through the report.

The Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index is a survey conducted of 1,000 people in the U.S., every day, 7 days a week.

What is striking is that the “Well Being Index” for Spokane has fallen off a cliff. “Emotional Health” went from #10 to #124 in one year. In every category but one, the “well being index” shows sharp drops for Spokane.  And geez, what’s happening in Olympia? Meltdown there too – but compare these to the State as whole. The State’s doing quite well.

This might explain the large number of police involved shootings, armed robberies, stabbings, and stuff best described as stupidity (a accidental murder on the weekend, a man killed by home made explosives – for fun! – at a Halloween party).
