Measuring National Well-being

ONS is developing new measures of national well-being. The aim is to provide a fuller picture of how society is doing by supplementing existing economic, social and environmental measures.

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

We must measure what matters - the key elements of national well-being. We want to develop measures based on what people tell us matters most.
