star this property answer text <p>The Office for National Statistics (ONS) is measuring National Wellbeing, not as an index but through a framework of 41 indicators which capture social progress around important aspects of life for individuals, communities and the nation. The statistics are experimental and as such we should not expect to have examples of major policies that have been heavily influenced by the wellbeing data at this stage.</p><p> </p><p>Since the introduction of the ONS framework for measuring National Wellbeing in 2011, DCMS has worked closely with the ONS to introduce sport and culture participation measures within ONS' national wellbeing headline measures for adults (May 2013). In January this year, measures of sport and culture were also included within ONS' initial national child wellbeing measures. DCMS' National Statistic ‘Taking Part', on culture and sport engagement, has measured subjective wellbeing since 2005/06. In 2012 ONS' subjective wellbeing questions were also added to support further analysis of wellbeing impacts.</p><p> </p><p>Our policies of ‘Getting more people playing sport' and ‘Supporting vibrant and sustainable arts and culture' are directly linked to ONS' national wellbeing measurement. DCMS continues to work to better understand and consider the impact of its sectors and policy on people's wellbeing across a number of the domains in ONS' national wellbeing measures including health, education, crime and unemployment. For example, in our recently released reports on ‘Quantifying the Social Impacts of Culture and Sport<sup>1</sup>' and ‘Quantifying and Valuing the Wellbeing Impacts of Culture and Sport<sup>2</sup>'</p><p> </p><p><sup>1</sup><a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/quantifying-the-social-impacts-of-sport-and-culture" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/quantifying-the-social-impacts-of-sport-and-culture</a></p><p><sup>2 </sup><a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/quantifying-and-valuing-the-wellbeing-impacts-of-culture-and-sport" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/quantifying-and-valuing-the-wellbeing-impacts-of-culture-and-sport</a></p><p> </p>
