How does your region perform when it comes to education, environment, safety and other topics important to your well-being? This interactive site allows you to measure well-being in your region and compare it with 362 other OECD regions based on nine topics central to the quality of our lives.
There is a growing awareness that we must go beyond GDP and economic statistics to get a fuller understanding of how society is doing. But it is also crucial to zoom in on how life is lived.
Where you live has an impact on your quality of life, and in return, you contribute to making your community a better place. Comparable measures of regional well-being offer a new way to gauge what policies work and can empower a community to act to achieve higher well-being for its citizens.
In this initiative, each region is measured in nine topics – income, jobs, health, access to services, environment, education, safety, civic engagement and housing. A score has been calculated for each topic so that you can compare places and topics within and across countries.
