Measuring National Well-Being

The Office for National Statistics Measuring Well-being programme wants to monitor well-being and is consulting on what to measure. To have your say, and get arts and culture included as an aspect of national well-being, click here.

 Out of the 8 factors (domains) that effect well-being, culture & heritage is only mentioned under Where We Live. The 8 Factors include:

  • Our relationships
  • Health
  • What we do
  • Where we live
  • Personal finance
  • Education and skills
  • Governance
  • The economy
  • The natural environment 

 There is lots of evidence out there from our members and arts organisations on the effect that participation has on wellbeing and unfortunately there doesn’t seem to be recognition of this in the proposal. We would therefore like to suggest that members respond to the consultation and particularly highlight the significance that culture & heritage play in supporting wellbeing. You have until January 23rd!
