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. ONS are committed to sharing ideas and proposals widely to ensure that the measures are relevant and founded on what matters to people.

Measuring national well-being will provide a more coherent measure of 'how the country is doing' than standalone measures such as GDP.
