Lincoln ranks in the First quintile of cities in the U.S. for overall well-being

The Sharecare Community Well-Being Index® is based on phone surveys of people living in 383 Metropolitan Statistical Areas (MSAs).

  • The Lincoln MSA (consisting of Lancaster and Seward counties) was ranked 58th of 383 MSAs in overall well-being.
  • The state of Nebraska was ranked 18th in overall well-being.

Beginning with the 2020 survey, individual well-being dimensions are no longer ranked but are instead reported as a score on a 0-100 scale. These well-being dimensions include: purpose, social, financial, community, and physical. Lincoln scores very similarly to the national average in all five dimensions and has a slightly higher overall Well-Being Index Score.
