This new book from Practical Action Publishing explores well-being ranking. This method has developed from wealth-ranking and incorporates the broader aspects of well-being - such as social standing and health – that people value as much as material wealth. It tells of the rise of these methods since the 1980s and at how well-being ranking exercises can help identify important differences within communities and monitor changes in well-being over time. It suggests an understanding of these differences are essential for good development aid work and describes the successful use of ranking tools over large populations along with the value of using multi-dimensional models of well-being. Available to buy from Practical Action Publishing.
