Abstract: The 5-Factor Wel, the latest version of the Wellness Evaluation of Lifestyle (WEL), was examined using a completely new 3,993-person database. Through exploratory and confirmatory factor analysis with 2 discrete subsets of these data, a new 4-factor solution was identified that provided the best fit for the data and accounted for 30% of the variance.
