How to implement personal wellbeing questions in your survey

This handy slide set gives simple guidance on using the ONS wellbeing questions in a survey you are designing.



The ONS personal well-being (PWB) questions were developed as part of the Measuring National Well-being Programme.

ONS sought advice from experts working in the field of subjective well-being and consulted with specialists on the National Statistician’s Measuring National Wellbeing Advisory Forum and Technical Advisory Group.

Based on this, as well as an extensive programme of question testing, four questions were designed which provide a concise and balanced approach to the measurement of subjective well-being.
