How should we measure wellbeing in a broader sense? Life satisfaction and wellbeing indicators

Date: 15 March 2016 - 8.00 - 18.30

Subjective wellbeing indicators are widely used in several disciplines to measure overall satisfaction in order to overcome limits and loopholes of traditional objective indicators. Researcher and policymakers have both a keen interest in understanding how subjective and objective indicators compare how they perform and differ and how they can be used to assess the impact of policy-making. The conference welcomes contributions aimed at moving ahead the frontier of studies on integrating subjective and objective indicators, on the methodologies for measuring subjective indicators and on the determinants of subjective wellbeing.
