5th OECD World Forum on Statistics, Knowledge, and Policy: Transforming Policy, Changing Lives
The OECD World Forums on Statistics, Knowledge and Policy were launched over a decade ago to bring more attention to the need for better measures and policies for well-being and progress.
This 5th OECD World Forum aimed to address the question of "How do we best put into practice new well-being measures to improve public policies and people’s lives?" by showcasing concrete examples of the impact of policies, frameworks and institutions that are using new well-being measures around the world. The Forum also explored how this accumulated experience can contribute to country-level action in the pursuit of a new set of universal Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The Forum was co-organised with INEGI, the Mexican National Statistical Institute, which has been at the forefront of experimentation and development of new statistical measures of well-being.
