EXPLOITING ORDINAL DATA FOR SUBJECTIVE WELL-BEING EVALUATION 

The evaluation of subjective well-being, and of similar issues related to quality of life, is usually addressed through composite indicators or counting procedures. This leads to inconsistencies and inefficiency in the treatment of ordinal data that, in turn, affect the quality of information provided to scholars and to policy-makers. In this paper we take a different path and prove that the evaluation of multidimensional ordinal well-being can be addressed in an effective and consistent way

CONCEPTUALIZING SUBJECTIVE WELL-BEING AND ITS MANY DIMENSIONS – IMPLICATIONS FOR DATA COLLECTION IN OFFICIAL STATISTICS AND FOR POLICY RELEVANCE

Subjective well-being encompasses several distinct but interacting aspects of people’s feelings, attitudes, and experiences. This paper assesses the state of the art for measuring these dimensions of people's lives, which typically involves analyzing self-reports of subjective well-being collected in survey instruments; however, other potentially complementary, technology-driven tools are emerging as well. We first answer the question, “what is subjective well-being?” and unpack its

OFFICIAL STATISTICS ON PERSONAL WELL-BEING: SOME REFLECTIONS ON THE DEVELOPMENT AND SOME REFLECTIONS ON THE DEVELOPMENT AND IN THE UK  

This paper draws on experience of the UK Office for National Statistics (ONS) programme to measure national well-being, particularly the high-profile element of the programme in which subjective well-being measures have been collected and published since April 2011. We reflect on drivers of the ONS work and on how these have given rise to interest both in national well-being – the Beyond GDP agenda – and in the use of subjective well-being measures (self-reported, personal well-being) in public

SUBJECTIVE AND COMMUNITY WELL-BEING INTERACTION IN A MULTILEVEL SPATIAL  MODELLING FRAMEWORK

this effect, namely to identify both types of effects, space and place-related, using the hierarchical (nested) data structure for the smallest administrative units – NUTS5/LAU2, i.e. communes (gminas). In their analysis, the authors employed two methods for measuring well-being: (i) individual (subjective) well-being measure derived from the nation-wide Time Use Survey data, which they occasionally replaced with 'life satisfaction' type of self-reported measures, and (ii
