Measuring National Wellbeing: Join the debate at the University of Leeds

04 April 2011 | 6.00 pm | Conference
Room LG.06, School of Law, The Liberty Building, University of Leeds

The Office for National Statistics (ONS) is developing new measures of national well-being. These measures will examine and address the quality of life of people in the UK along with environmental and sustainability issues and economic performance. The ONS has been consulting with people, organisations and businesses across the country, as well as central and local government, to ask what matters most in people's lives and what is important for measuring the nation's well-being.

Now it's your chance to have a say, as the debate is coming to Leeds.

The panel will include:

  • Professor Kate Pickett: University of York, Health Sciences/Equality Trust
  • Aileen Simkins: Office for National Statistics
  • Nina Quinlan: University of Leeds, Wellbeing Directorate
