- Among men, blacks have lowest well-being in U.S.
- Young black males evaluate own lives far lower than young non-blacks
WASHINGTON, D.C. — Among U.S. men, blacks have lower well-being than non-blacks, particularly among young men and seniors, according to the Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index. Black men under the age of 35 have a Well-Being Index score that is at least one point lower than all other groups, a deficit that is statistically significant.
These findings are based on nearly 98,000 interviews with American men aged 18 and over, from Jan. 2-Dec. 30, 2014, conducted as part of the Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index.
