To boost well-being, go south
From California Watch:
The Bay Area, scoring 6.8, is home to some of the highest levels of health, education and income in the country. If the region were a state, it would surpass Connecticut’s 6.3 for highest in the nation. The San Joaquin Valley, on the other hand, would come in last if it were a state at 3.84, just behind West Virginia’s 3.85.
Other regions in the state fall somewhere in between: San Diego and the southern border at 5.65, greater Sacramento at 5.48, Southern California at 5.28, the Central Coast at 4.82, Coastal Sierra at 4.67 and Northern California at 4.26.
