The Gallup National Health and Well-Being Index is calculated on a scale of 0 to 100, where 0 represents the lowest possible wellbeing and 100 represents the highest possible wellbeing.
The Gulfport-Biloxi-Pascagoula metro which held the third-lowest ranking in 2016-2017 had the lowest overall wellbeing nationally for the first time in 2017-2018, supplanting Fort Smith, Arkansas-Oklahoma and Canton-Massillon, Ohio, neither of which reached the minimum number of completed surveys required for reporting this period. ■
