    OECD publication called “How's Life?” presents indicators about quality of life (Better Life Index), which focuses on the essential aspects of life, such as health, education, environment, etc.

     

    The publication provides a comprehensive picture of well-being in OECD countries and contains a wide range of data on well-being in 11 different dimensions of life (economic dimension: income level, employment and housing) and quality of life in the broad sense of the word (ie. health, education, the balance between private and professional life, protection of the environment, social connections, civic engagement, life satisfaction and safety). The report also contains three special chapters focusing specifically on child welfare, civic volunteering and regional dimension of prosperity.

     

    The OECD Better Life Initiative includes a set of indicators relating to individual countries, which are regularly updated and posted on the interactive website. Internet users can also share their opinion by creating their own index to improve the quality of life: http://www.oecdbetterlifeindex.org

     

     

    How, then, does Poland look in terms of quality of life compared to other OECD countries? Poland ranks above the average for certain partial indicators of a better life such as housing, education and security, and below average in some other areas like: life satisfaction, income, health, employment, social relations, civic involvement and the environment.
