Since then there has been intensive development work of new measures of well-being that include - but go beyond - measures of economic performance such as GDP.

Between October 2011 and January 2012, we consulted on the first set of domains and measures for national well-being. A summary of findings was released in February and a revised set of measures was published in July 2012. These will continue to be improved and consulted upon.
Several articles have been published on subjective well-being, the latest being the first annual experimental subjective well-being analysis in July 2012.
