dc.description.abstractThis thesis examines the Canadian Index of Wellbeing and its potential uses alongside existing measurements of wellbeing. It examines the creation of the Canadian Index of Wellbeing and how it might inform policy decisions compared to the Human Development Index. It concludes that the Canadian Index of Wellbeing based on its creation process, specificity, structure, and inclusion of subjective indicators is a superior indicator for Canadian use than the current standard, the Human Development Index.en_US
