THE WELL-BEING MAP

The Well-Being Map by the World Well-Being Project (WWBP) at the University of Pennsylvania's Positive Psychology Center displays different measurements of well-being for each U.S. county based on census data and the statistical language analysis of publicly-shared Tweets. Choose to view regional measurements for characteristics such as life satisfaction, extraversion, education, and income. Top 10 Lists allow users to view the highest- and lowest-scoring counties in the nation and within each state, and a County Profiles page lets users search for a county and view how that county ranks in the nation across all reported characteristics. This interactive online tool demonstrates the WWBP's capability to analyze publicly-shared social media language to derive well-being insights easily on a massive scale. Christie designed the Well-Being Map's web interface and functionalities, and she directed and collaborated with WWBP researchers and programmers to bring the Map to life.
