Money isn’t everything for well-being

A new study from the University of Chicago suggests that traditional measures of prosperity are not the best gauges of overall well-being. The study, entitled ‘Health and wealth disparities in the United States’, shows that when health is taken into account in addition to income, the prosperity gap between blacks and whites shrinks.

The authors believe that both health and income should be taken into consideration to give a clearer picture of the ‘well-being gap’ between races.
