Measuring National Well-being
June 13, 2013
This article analyses by age two of the current measures of national well-being: ‘satisfaction with income’ and ‘those who are finding their financial situation quite or very difficult’ and their relationship to well-being. There will also be some indication of change in perceived financial situation over time and by other characteristics of individuals. The data used are from Understanding Society, the UK Household Longitudinal Study.
