The Social Science Research Council’s Measure of America project examined women in the country’s 25 most populous cities and looked at three factors that make up overall well-being: life expectancy, earnings and education.
The Washington region beat out other metro areas in earnings and education, and trailed only slightly behind in longevity.
According to researchers, “women living in major metro areas are doing better than the typical American woman” overall.
