Living Standards Framework

INSIGHTS: Living Standards Framework

Wellbeing contributes to people's quality of life including good health, increased longevity, resilience to trauma, creativity and job satisfaction.

The Government's Wellbeing Framework measures wellbeing using a set of indicators that include cultural identity and activity. It is adapted from the OECD's Better Life Index.

The Wellbeing Framework is relevant to providers of recreation. Participation in recreation and leisure can increase a population's capacity and capability and increase the wellbeing of a population. Recreation can "add value" to the measures used in the Framework in all of the five areas covered by the Indicators.

Read the third in our Insights series to find out more including an overview of how Recreation adds value, links to relevant research and other information.
