  • The OECD Better Life Initiative focuses on developing statistics to capture aspects of life that matter to people and that shape the quality of their lives. This allows for a better understanding of what drives the well-being of people and nations, and what needs to be done to achieve greater progress for all.
  • Drawing upon the recommendations of the Commission on the Measurement of Economic Performance and Social Progress the OECD has identified 11 dimensions as being essential to well-being, from health and education to local environment, personal security and overall satisfaction with life, as well as more traditional measures such as income.

Go to OECD to create your personal index and enter the sweepstakes.
