What would make your life better?

Perhaps items like housing, education, security and health are at the top of a list of priorities. They are also at the top of many other people’s lists around the world. The OECD (Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development) has built an interactive and intelligent tool to understand what the most important factors are when it comes to quality of life. In addition to checking the results found here in Brazil, this data can also be compared with other countries and you can directly participate in building this indicator which has a global scope.

The goal is to reach 100,000 participants by the end of this year. The “Better Life Index” has already been released in 5 different languages and 34 countries are taking part and interacting with graphs, which are constantly updated through the participation of over 80,000 different users who assess the topics of: income, jobs, community, education, environment, civic engagement, health, life satisfaction, security and work-life balance.

In Brazil, “community” and “life satisfaction” are the highest ranking items. The OECD shows a panorama of perceptions by Brazilians on country conditions and points to interesting data that 90% of people who responded to the survey believe they know someone they could rely on in a time of need, a rate higher than the global average of 89%.

To better understand how this tool works, see the video tutorial here. See the details of the “Better Life Index” and contribute by participating.
