Achieving and sustaining higher levels of human well-being is a core challenge, for individuals, governments and international organisations worldwide. Measures of human well-being levels are an integral part of this process, being increasingly used to monitor and evaluate conditions within and among countries. This book provides insights into how human well-being might be better conceptualised and measured. It identifies and reviews various concepts and measures and provides recommendations for future practice and research.
