National well-being is far broader than just being happy. National well-being includes not only the quality of our lives, of which happiness is a part, but also the country's economic performance and environmental
and sustainability issues.

ONS has published a range of work in the last year to contribute to this, including the publication of the environmental accounts, analyses of household economic well-being and estimates of human capital.  Measures of well-being will complement well established economic measures such as GDP by providing a more complete picture of how society is progressing.
