PDF (Understanding life in Ireland: The well-being framework 2023)

IreIand’s Well-being Framework provides policy-makers and Government with a more holistic way of thinking about how Ireland is doing as a country. It focuses on quality of life, with a particular emphasis on equality and sustainability. It reviews performance across economic, environmental and social issues simultaneously, rather than in isolation. Ireland’s well-being approach consists of eleven dimensions which cover outcomes associated with sustainable quality of life. These are represented by 35 indicators which can be viewed on the CSO dashboard.  The Framework has been informed by two phases of consultation and four research projects. More information can be found on the Well-being Portal.
