In Te Hotonga Hapori, wellbeing is measured both by looking at how people, families, whānau, and communities are doing in terms of these different life domains and how they feel about their lives. We will gather information on wellbeing in three different ways.
We will look at existing data records on life domains from Statistics New Zealand’s Integrated Data Infrastructure to build a picture of how communities across New Zealand are doing.
We will also ask people living in different areas about their wellbeing through a survey. This survey will ask questions about the different life domains as well their subjective perceptions of life: how satisfied they are with their life, and how well their family or whānau are doing.
Finally, we will collect information on how people feel as they go about their daily life. We will use a mobile research app that can collect information about people’s feelings at a particular place and time. This will allow us to link how people are feeling directly to aspects of the neighbourhood environment.
