Gallup maps the health in America

Published on March 5th in the NYT: “For the last three years, Gallup has called 1,000 randomly selected American adults each day and asked them about indicators of their quality of life. Responses are converted to the Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index. Here are the 2010 results, sorted by Congressional districts.” The map is nicely done with features like zooming and switching between different criteria. While the direction of the legend is always the same (dark for better), it needs a bit of getting used to as the same color represents all criteria ranging from obesity to nighttime safety.
