How do you define a better life? What matters most to you – good schools, safe streets or something else? The OECD Better Life Initiative proposes an interactive tool, Your Better Life Index, which enables you to rate your country on the things you feel make for a better life. The Index allows citizens to compare well-being across 34 countries, based on 11 dimensions the OECD has identified as essential, in the areas of material living conditions and quality of life: housing, income, jobs, community, education, environment, governance, health, life satisfaction, safety, work-life balance. The OECD is NOT deciding what makes for better lives. YOU decide for yourself. The Index will be live on 24 May 2011.
