Canadian Index of Wellbeing

"Although currently a work-in-progress, when the CIW is fully developed, it will chart and provide unique insights into how Canadians' lives are getting better - or worse - in areas that matter: health, standard of living, quality of the environment, time use, education and skills, community vitality, civic engagement, and arts and culture. Most importantly, the CIW will shine a spotlight on how these important areas are interconnected. How, for example, changes in income are linked to changes in health, or how community engagement and living standards are connected." [from http://www.atkinsonfoundation.ca/ciw]
