The OECD Better life index may sound familiar if you have been using AmAre Index, because they are both built with graded/weighted approaches which allow the index to be compared across people, countries, categories, etc., at the same time respecting the subjective assessment of each respondant. The eleven topics of well-being identified by the OECD are: Housing, Income, Jobs, Community, Education, Environment, Governance, Health, Life, Satisfaction, Safety, Work-life balance. OECD is accepting advices from users about new topics to add to the Index. Respondents can entry their grades and topics weights on http://www.oecdbetterlifeindex.org/ Each topic is built on one to three specific indicators. In the case of the Work-Life Balance, for example, three separate measures are considered: the number of employees working long hours; the percentage of working mothers; and the time people devote to leisure and personal activities. In the future, new indicators (describing sustainability of well-being over time) will be added. The Index covers the 34 countries which are members of the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development. OECD Better life index does not assign rankings to countries. Users can investigate how each of the 11 topics can contribute to well-being. For more information, please visit: http://www.iswb.org/
