Inequality and the PIBien-être
The PIBien-être aims to go beyond GDP in order to capture the multiple facets of the quality of life. The government of Luxembourg assigned this project to the Conseil économique et social (CES) and Conseil supérieur pour un développement durable (CSDD) to develop a comprehensive notion of well-being. The result is an array of 63 indicators that cover 11 different domains of people’s lives from 2009 onward. The agency in charge of data collection and computation is STATEC. A final report on the project was submitted last year. The talk will focus on some of the shortcomings of the list of indicators and present proposals to move forward.
