Led by Dr Susan Oman

The podcast

Dr Susan Oman’s new book, Understanding Well-Being Data, inspires this podcast. She explains how well-being data is understood and used to make crucial decisions that affect our life chances, livelihoods and quality of life. “Following the data” is a familiar phrase from government Covid-19 communications. 

This podcast considers the pandemic and follows well-being data back centuries, revealing it has long been used to track the health and wealth of society.
