Measuring Well-being in Cities – Indices Reviewed

Civic Exchange collected 165 indices as part of our project to develop a Wellbeing Index for Asian Cities. We studied how these indices are constructed so as to understand how we may eventually design and construct a new index. Having collected and studied these indices, and having prepared a report, we believe publishing what we have collected may also be useful to other researchers. This document contains all the 165 indices we have studied from September 2011 to April 2012. Each one of them is presented in what we hope is an easy to understand summary table.
