Details for Well-being evidence for policy: A review

Name:Well-being evidence for policy: A review

Authors: Laura Stoll, Juliet Michaelson and Charles Seaford (nef)

This review aims to provide the tools necessary to transfer academic knowledge on the causes of well-being, and factors have associations with subjective well-being into a practical format for policymakers, by reviewing the current evidence (up to the end of 2011) – providing an introduction to the state of current knowledge.
The policy areas which have been identified include: the economy, social relationships and community, health, the local environment, education and care. There is also a section on personal characteristics, which, although often not amenable to direct policy changes, play an important part in the understanding of the factors that are important to an individual’s well-being.
