Survey: What Makes the British Happy?

Stan Alcorn Apr 5, 2011

Measuring happiness is no longer just for Bhutan; The United Kingdom is developing measures of “national well-being,” and they’re just finishing up a debate on what that means. This being the digital age, some of that debate is taking place online, where a cross-section of Brits are answering the question: “What in life matters most to you?”

You can read their responses and add your own opinion to the mix, but hurry; the debate ends April 15.
