How governments will use National Accounts of Well-being

Our proposal to measure National Accounts of Well-being intends ultimately to shift the goalposts for what nations regard as success. The aim is to bring about change in how societies shape the lives of their citizens. If they are to be effective, National Accounts of Well-being therefore need to influence the design of policy made by international, national and local governments.

Governments planning to implement National Accounts of Well-being will need to consider both the broader context within which the national accounts framework will sit, as well as the ways in which National Accounts of Well-being will be used in the policy-making process.
