Better Life Index

Since it was founded in 1961, the OECD has helped governments design better policies for better lives for their citizens and has been actively involved in the debate on well-being, providing evidence and developing a measurement framework.

Based on this experience, the OECD launched in 2011 the Better Life Index, an online tool where citizens can tell the OECD what matters for their well-being, and become more informed on how countries perform based on 11 topics essential to well-being in terms of material living conditions (housing, income, jobs) and quality of life (community, education, environment, governance, health, life satisfaction, safety and work-life balance).
