While income has long been our primary measure of poverty, communities and whole countries are turning to broader measures of well-being to address the causes and consequences of poverty and improve our understanding of how people are really doing. In this webinar, Anita Chandra, Vice President and Director, RAND Social and Economic Well-Being, and Carol Graham, the Leo Pasvolsky Senior Fellow and Research Director – Global Economy and Development, discuss how measures of well-being can improve our understanding of poverty, inequality, and despair. They explain what well-being is, how it is different from other types of measures, and how it can inform better policy and better investments, especially at the community level.
