SDRN Well-being Seminar

By SDRN on 25th September 2012
Date and Time: 
Tuesday, September 25, 2012 - 17:30 to 19:00

The Office for National Statistics (ONS) published its first annual national subjective well-being results in July 2012, revealing its initial findings from four new questions included in the 2011-2012 Integrated Household Survey devised to help measure national subjective well-being.

With the relevance of well-being to the sustainability agenda, SDRN hosted an evening seminar in central London on 25 September 2012 to examine the results and to explore how this new understanding of national subjective well-being might be used to inform the policy-making process. Presentations were followed by a Q&A and discussion session with an audience of sustainability professionals, and the evening ended with drinks and networking.


  • Richard Wakeford (Chair, SDRN Advisory Committee; Chair, OECD Rural Working Party) (Chair)
  • Stephen Hicks (Assistant Deputy Director, Measuring National Well-being, ONS)
  • Hetan Shah (Executive Director, The Royal Statistical Society)
