What matters the most to people? Evidence from the OECD Better Life Index users’ responses

This report presents the findings of the OECD Better Life Index  (BLI) which measures countries' wellbeing. It specifically investigates the factors shaping users’ preferences over a set of 11 well-being dimensions; provides insights into users’ preferences for a large group of countries which differ in terms of culture and living conditions; and identifies differences between population groups. The research finds that health status, education and life satisfaction are the aspects that matter the most for BLI users in OECD countries.
