Who’s Living the Good Life in America?

December 16, 2014    |  Allstate



What does it mean to live a good life? Everyone has their own definition, of course, but we asked 1000 Americans, taking a cross section of every slice of life to see if we could identify any patterns. Look at the five most interesting findings we found below, and explore the interactive infographic yourself to see how you compare.

Almost 9 in 10 Americans say they’re living a good life.
The older you are, the less likely you are to believe achieving your personal goals and dreams are very necessary to living a good life.
Retirees are, by far, the most likely to say they were very successful at their jobs.

Single people place significantly higher importance on being wealthy than married people.

The unemployed are the least positive about their present financial situation, but the most optimistic about it improving.
