Tulsa Fares Poorly in Well-Being Index

Some good folks in the evaluation business released their "Well-Being Index" this week and—surprise!—Tulsa fared poorly.

Out of 162 U.S. cities, Tulsa ranked 115, much closer to the bottom of the list than the top. Oklahoma City ranked 30 slots higher, coming in at 85.

The ranking includes six health measures, including emotional health, work environment, healthy behaviors and measure of physical health.

Western cities dominated the top of the list. Boulder, Colo., topped the rankings and several California cities were in the top ten.

Tulsa also fell far behind other cities in the region, including Wichita, 39, and Austin, which came in at 45. 

USA Today has the details here.
