Measuring National well-being

National Well-being logo
ONS is developing new measures of national well-being.

The aim is that these new measures will cover the quality of life of people in the UK, environmental and sustainability issues, as well as the economic performance of the country.

Developing better measures of well-being is a long term programme and ONS are committed to sharing ideas and proposals widely to ensure that the measures are relevant and founded on what matters to people.

The first phase of the programme entailed a National debate which gathered views on what matters to people. A report (1.3 Mb Pdf) on the findings was published in July 2011.
