Looking at the wealth of a country to measure its well-being and progress has its limitations. Many people think that looking at other things, such as social and environmental factors, as well as wealth is needed to build a true picture of country’s progress.

The Organisation of Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) is an international organisation that promotes policies that will improve the economic and social well-being of people around the world.

The OECD created the Better Life Index as a tool that allows people to compare how countries perform according to the importance given to 11 topics that make for a better life. These 11 topics are:

  • Housing
  • Income
  • Jobs
  • Community
  • Education
  • Environment
  • Governance
  • Health
  • Life satisfaction
  • Safety
  • Work-life balance

Jersey's Better Life Index was published for the first time for Jersey in 2013.
