Australian Unity, in partnership with the Australian Centre on Quality of Life at Deakin University, regularly measures how satisfied Australians are with their own lives and with life in Australia.
Using the Australian Unity Wellbeing Index, it investigates satisfaction with economic, environmental and social conditions in Australia, and gives insights into our individual wellbeing.
The Australian Unity Wellbeing Index is a comprehensive measure of personal and national wellbeing. Unlike traditional indicators of quality of life such as Gross Domestic Product, the index measures how Australians feel about personal issues such as their relationships or national issues such as satisfaction with government.
Since its launch in April 2001, the Australian Unity Wellbeing Index has established itself as the leading and most comprehensive measure of wellbeing in Australia.
