Wellness Index FAQ
- What is the Mindbody Wellness Index?
- We surveyed thousands across the country, asking them about their wellness habits, including how stressed they feel, how close they are with friends and family, how much alcohol they drink, what their workout habits include, how they practice self-care, and much more. To rank each of the top 50 cities, we use a proprietary statistical scoring algorithm that incorporates anonymized, city-level analytics data from our software and a large-scale consumer survey. The scale can range from zero to 100—and resulting scores are ranked, with the highest-ranking associated with the healthiest city, and the lowest denoting the least healthy city.
- Who did we survey?
- To gather the most accurate information, we asked 17,475 US adults in the largest 50 cities to participate in an online survey between 9/22/22 and 10/30/22. Survey participants, provided by a 3rd-party recruitment agency, are general population adults spanning the ages of 18 to 65, with a mean age of 41. The survey included a variety of behavioral, attitudinal, and preferential questions related to consumer engagement. The sample is 53% female, 46% male, and 1% who do not identify with either gender.
