Well-being patterns uncovered: An analysis of UK data

Source: New Economics Foundation (UK)

From Executive Summary:

The UK has a unique resource. As of April 2011, the UK’s largest survey, the Annual Population Survey (APS), has included four questions on subjective well-being. The data from the survey will allow analysts both inside and outside government to better understand the determinants of well-being...

This report presents an analysis of these data by nef (the new economics foundation). It provides an overview of well-being in the UK, and uncovers interesting patterns related to ethnicity, employment patterns, working hours, local variation in well-being, and well-being inequality.
