ESS REPORT: MEASURING AND REPORTING ON EUROPEANS’ WELLBEING: FINDINGS FROM THE EUROPEAN SOCIAL SURVEY

Posted on Updated on

The booklet ‘Measuring and reporting on Europeans’ Wellbeing’ presents findings on Europeans’ wellbeing using data from the first six rounds of the ESS. The aim is to showcase the scope that ESS data provide for exploring the definition, distribution and drivers of subjective wellbeing across Europe and to encourage others to make full use of ESS data in advancing society’s understanding of these important issues. This is the result of a collaboration between leading experts on wellbeing in Europe and prominent researchers in fields such as sociology, political science, demography, psychology and geography, to identify some highlights from the rich body of research into wellbeing carried out using ESS data. By making a variety of innovative, methodologically sophisticated, and policy-relevant findings easily accessible, the aim is to provide a valuable contribution to both academic and policy debates around wellbeing.

Arnstein Aassve, Letizia Mencarini and Maria Sironi contributed to this issue with the article: “Does parenthood bring about happiness?
