Measuring well-being handbook for practitioners

This short handbook on measuring well-being is produced by the Centre for Well-being at nef (the new economics foundation), and is designed primarily for voluntary organisations and community groups delivering projects and services, to help them kick-start the process of measuring well-being outcomes.

This handbook, published in July 2012, provides tools for thinking about well-being and its measurement. These will help to ensure that when you measure people’s well-being, you do so from an informed position.

Part I of this handbook is Understanding Well-being. Part II describes nef's recommended practical tools for measuring well-being.

The handbook can be downloaded at the nef website, or you can click to download the report below.
