Measuring Objective Well-Being (societal level)

Many communities and nations monitor and track the well-being of individuals among their citizens or constituents. Measures of well-being that are considered objective are those that can be assessed using administrative or other data, including indices capturing aspects of the social and physical environment, communities, organizations, or the economy. Such indicators are derived from material, concrete and quantifiable information. Examples of measures of objective well-being include levels of educational attainment, neighborhood quality, income levels, and economic stability, with higher levels of these indicators generally suggesting higher well-being.
