Measuring National Well-being

The Measuring National Well-being Programme aims to provide a fuller picture of 'how society is doing' than is given by economic indicators such as GDP

Why measure Children’s Well-being?

- Children’s well-being is an important aspect of the well-being of the nation. In 2012 there were 12 million children = nearly a fifth of the total UK population..

- Research from the Children’s Society (2013) has shown that a significant minority of children in the UK suffer from low well-being and this impacts on their childhood and life chances as well as for the families and communities around them.

Article published March 2014: a draft set of measures of national well-being for children aged 0 to 15, alongside a draft set of measures of national well-being for young people aged 16 to 24.


Measuring National Children's Well-being: relationships of children with parents


Plans for the future

  • ONS will continue to develop the measures for children and young people, taking account of ongoing feedback from users and experts.

  • The headline measures are likely to be maintained regularly as part of the ongoing work of the National Well-being programme.

  • There will be further analytical outputs.
