Measuring multidimensional wellbeing

Posted by on Nov 24, 2015 in Servizi | No Comments

How is it possible to measure wellbeing going beyond the traditional economic indicators? How to communicate wellbeing measurements in an effective and exhaustive way? Which policy implications may derive from wellbeing measurement?

As a wide literature shows, the economic indicators are not enough to assess the level of wellbeing in a society: also the social and environmental dimensions of wellbeing must be considered
A multidimensional system for measuring wellbeing (e.g. the Italian BES – Benessere Equo e Sostenibile, promoted by Cnel and Istat) allows a more deep comprehension of the society in a certain territory, thanks to the numerous indicators used. Wellbeing measurements enable policy-makers to identify the priorities of intervention.

ARCO Lab researchers, thanks to the expertise of its Scientific Committee composed by the main Italian experts in multidimensional wellbeing measurements, support local administrations through the following steps:

• Facilitation of the participatory processes for the identification of the domains and indicators that have to be considered when measuring wellbeing;

• Support during the collection, elaboration, interpretation and communication of data;

• Training of the local administrations’ statistical offices;

• Support in the successive updating of the measurement
