Measuring National Well-being - Health, 2013

This article analyses by age and other variables two of the current measures of national wellbeing: ‘satisfaction with health’ and ‘evidence of mental ill-health (GHQ)’ and their relationship to well-being. There is also contextual information about other variables related to health which may affect an individual’s well-being. The data used are from Understanding Society, the UK Household Longitudinal Study (UKHLS) 2010–11.
