Measuring national well-being: Life in the UK: 2016

Published annually by the Office of National Statistics, this report provides a statistical snapshot of life in the UK today across the 10 domains of national well-being. It is the fourth annual summary to be delivered by the Measuring National Well-being programme. Section 9 asks: How do we feel about where we live?

"positive feelings about where we live can create a strong, inclusive community where people feel that they belong, and where they feel safe. In turn communities that are strong are more likely to deliver higher rates of social and civic participation, lower rates of crime, and improved physical and mental health among its inhabitants"
