Inspiration – 2010 Well Being Survey

The video-scapes that make up the series known as City Walks finds it’s origins as exploration of health and wellness statistics of cities in the United States of America. Since 2008, every two years Gallup- Healthways creates a survey of American cities chosen by population size and ranked numerical according to the results. This survey is then compiled and released as The State of American Well-Being

My exploration into this topic is using the 2010 results of the survey which included 188 cities. Below you can find a map created to keep track of the cities as well as a document containing their respective rankings.
