This release from the ONS provides the latest overview of wellbeing in the UK today. The Measuring National Well-being programme began in November 2010 with the aim to ‘develop and publish an accepted and trusted set of National Statistics which help people understand and monitor well-being’.

The programme has developed a set of 41 headline measures, organised by ten ‘domains’ including topics such as ‘health’, ‘what we do’ and ‘where we live’. The ‘Life in the UK’ report accompanies the March 2014 update and takes a closer look at measures within each domain.  This infographic gives a brief summary of the focus of the report.

This is the second summary of life in the UK to be delivered by the Measuring National Well-being programme and will be updated annually.
