12 indicators of a healthy community

There are many ways to assess community well-being. A Yale research group has found that 12 indicators are highly predictive (not necessarily the cause of) community health and well-being or the opposite.
A Yale-led team of researchers has identified 12 community factors independently related to well-being. The factors included some obvious ones, such as higher levels of education and income, as well as some surprises, including a higher percentage of black residents, a higher percentage of bicycle commuters, and better access to preventive care, such as mammograms. The results appear in the journal PLOS ONE.
