How are People Really Doing?

In the effort to measure well-being, many organizations are looking past the Gross National Product and studying indicators such as education, health, and income.

Since 2008, our friends at the American Human Development Project have been releasing national, state, and thematic publications with the intent to provide easy-to-use yet methodologically sound tools for understanding the distribution of well-being and opportunity in America and stimulating fact-based dialogue about issues we all care about: health, education, and living standards.

This October the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) will publish “How’s life?,” a new report that will explore 11 dimensions essential to well-being.
