It seems the world’s most powerful country is getting a bit melancholic.
Data generated from more than 100,000 people who were interviewed by the Gallup-Healthways for their well-being index revealed that 47 percent of Americans are struggling to be healthy and be happy while the four percent are already suffering. Meanwhile, 49 percent are flying high and seems to be with no problems.
Those who are on the 49 percent: the happy and thriving, had higher incomes, healthier and more educated in contrast with the other half who are suffering have problems regarding food, shelter or health.
The researchers are hoping that the survey will – when broken down by occupation – help employers create a happier working environment and healthier employees.
