Measuring the wellbeing of California
When it comes to measuring how well a country is doing, many people look to things like Gross Domestic Product or the stock market economic indicators. But, does that give us a good idea about how people are doing?
What about the number of people who have access to education or quality healthcare? Those are the things that Measure of America, a nonprofit that studies wellbeing, focuses on.

In this interview, Kristen Lewis, director of Measure of America, tells us about it.
