Measuring national well-being consultation
The Office of National Statistics is devising new government indicators of wellbeing, and the current draft doesn't say nearly enough about Play!
If you haven't responded yet, please do so and encourage all your play contacts to do likewise. A copy of the questionnaire can be found at http://www.ons.gov.uk/ons/about-ons/consultations/open-consultations/measuring-national-well-being/index.html
Opening date: 25 November 2010
Closing date: 15 April 2011
The aim is that these new measures will cover the quality of life of people in the
UK, environmental and sustainability issues, as well as the economic performance of the country.
To develop better measures of the nation’s well-being we want to ask what matters most in people lives and what is important for measuring the nation’s well-being.
Some of the aspects that we know affect national well-being include:
• Income and wealth
• Job satisfaction and economic security
• Ability to have a say on local and national issues
• Having good connections with friends and relatives
• Present and future conditions of the environment
• Education and training
• Personal and cultural activities, including caring and volunteering
