A cohesive society works towards the well-being of all its citizens, fights exclusion and marginalisation, creates a sense of belonging, promotes trust, and offers the opportunity of upward mobility. For many years, the OECD has been focusing on people's well-being and social progress, looking not only at economic issues but also at the diverse experiences and living conditions of people and households. In this regard, the OECD is supporting LAC countries to effectively measure well-being in the region through initiatives, such as the OECD How’s life Index to better assess social and well-being metrics.
