St. Louisans Say They Have High Quality of Life

St. Louis, MO – Using a system known as positive psychology, the survey by the Gallup Organization uses 12 indicators to gauge how area residents feel about their sense of happiness and satisfaction. Gallup's Gary Gordon says St. Louisans see four of those indicators - education, friendships, values and spirituality -- as their greatest strengths.

Gordon says St. Louisans can now use the survey findings both at the policy and grassroots levels to set priorities for their communities.
