For the first time in quite a while, there was good news in the newspaper this morning. On an index of well-being, California stacks up pretty well and the Bay Area is very high on the list. When compared with other states, California is in the group of those highest in well-being, along with Washington and a large swath of the Midwest. The handy website allows you to zoom in on Congressional Districts and to see that Silicon Valley ranks highest for general well-being of its residents, but San Francisco is not far behind. One interesting factoid is that San Francisco’s lowest standing comes in the area of emotional health–I wonder if all that complaining we do is coming back to haunt us. At any rate our physical health and general contentment still lift us up to the top levels, but then, we always knew we were good.
