Happiness in the UK to be rated

27th July 2011

After a favourable response from the public, the government has confirmed that they will proceed with their plans for a Well-being Index.

The indicators will be published in the autumn and 200,000 people will give ratings on a scale of 1-10 to feelings like happiness, anxiety and satisfaction. Prime Minister David Cameron said: "If your goal in politics is to help make a better life for people - which mine is - and if you know, both in your gut and from a huge body of evidence, that prosperity alone can't deliver a better life, then you've got to take practical steps to make sure government is properly focused on our quality of life as well as economic growth, and that is what we are trying to do."
