An Interim Harmonised Standard has been developed as detailed below.
Interim Standard – Personal Well-being
An Interim Harmonised Standard for Personal Well-being has been developed in order to inform users about the development of the ONS survey questions on Personal Well-being. The four Personal Well-being questions were developed by ONS and are currently used on various surveys including the Labour Force Survey and the Annual Population Survey. A fully ratified set of questions will be available in the longer term.
The standard includes links to the ONS Well-being Project, a User Guide and Quality & Methodology Information.
Further background and guidance is available in the Interim Standard - Personal Well-being (275.8 Kb Pdf) Report.
