Understanding Well-being Data

Exploring the concept of well-being data and its power and potential to shape society

What is well-being? How is it understood by different people in different times and places? What is the role of data in understanding well-being, and how can a better understanding of well-being data improve shared understanding of societal problems, and make for a more understanding society?

This series, based on Dr Susan Oman’s research, explores these questions and helps us question assumptions that have underpinned centuries of social science, statistical analysis and policy work.
