Your better life index
On May 24th, 2011, OECD will release the first part of the Better Life Initiative: your better life index.
Your better life index is a data visualization tool that let you compare countries according to criteria that you choose and which are beyond traditional economic indicators.
Following OECD’s work on progress initiated in 2007 in Istanbul, and the works of the Stiglitz-Sen-Fitoussi commission on the Measurement of Economic Performance and Social Progress in 2009, OECD collected data on topics such as life satisfaction, sense of security or perceived health. With the tool, a user can assign priorities to some subjects and see which countries come up first.
