IPPR North and Carnegie UK Trust report on ‘wellbeing measures’

‘Shifting the Dial: From wellbeing measures to policy practice’ is a joint IPPR North and Carnegie UK Trust report exploring how to put wellbeing measures into policy practice here in the UK, and explains why GDP alone is not a sufficient measurement on how society should progress.

This report offers key lesson on how to ensure wellbeing measures matter in the policymaking progress. It draws on international experience focusing on: France, Canada (the Canadian Index of Wellbeing; Vital Signs Toronto, led by the Toronto Community Foundation; the city of Guelph) and the United States (the state of Virginia and the city of Somerville).
