Measuring national happiness
Your Better Life Index currently profiles the 34 OECD member countries across the 11 topics of wellâ€being, and will eventually also include the OECD’s six partner countries (Brazil, China, India, Indonesia, Russia, and South Africa), representing the world’s major economies.
The Index contains an overall description of the quality of life in each country, followed by its performance across the 25 individual indicators that make up the 11 topics of wellâ€being.
You can put different weights on each of the topics, and thus decide for yourself what contributes most to wellâ€being, or see how prioritising specific issues of wellâ€being affects the overall picture.
