A new poll ranks nearly 200 U.S. communities based on the well being of their residents.

The results are based on a survey of well-being conducted in 2016 and 2017 by Gallup-Sharecare. The survey included people in 186 metro areas, and the scores were averaged over a two-year period.

For the poll, researchers interviewed, via telephone, more than 337,000 U.S. adults in all 50 states. The researchers calculated a well-being score for each community, based on the participants' answers to questions about different aspects of their well-being, including their sense of purpose, social relationships, financial lives, community involvement and physical health.
