SDRN Well-being Seminar


The Office for National Statistics (ONS) published its first annual national subjective well-being results this July, revealing its initial findings from four new questions included in the 2011-2012 Integrated Household Survey devised to help measure national subjective well-being. With the relevance of well-being to the sustainability agenda, the Sustainable Development Research Network (SDRN) is holding a seminar to examine the results and to explore how our new understanding of national subjective well-being may be used to inform the policy-making process.

Speakers include:
• Richard Wakeford (Chair, SDRN Advisory Committee; Chair, OECD Rural Working Party) (Chair)
• Stephen Hicks (Assistant Deputy Director, Measuring National Well-being, ONS)
• Hetan Shah (Executive Director, The Royal Statistical Society)
