How Do Seattle Women Fare?

Pretty well, according to a new report: Women's Well-Being: Ranking America's Top 25 Metro Areas.

Seattle women rank:
  • 6th in overall human development
  • 6th in educational attainment
  • 10th in life expectancy
"The study uses the American Human Development Index, a summary measure the combines official government data in three essential areas: a long and healthy life, access to knowledge, and a decent standard of living. The Index is a tool for measuring progress in well-being and access to opportunity over time, telling us where America is succeeding in creating opportunity as well as where we need to focus resources to create it."
