Understanding Well-being Data

CWiPP online event: Understanding Well-being Data

Understanding Well-being Data: improving social and cultural policy practice and research is a new book, published by Palgrave Macmillan Oct 2021. For CWIPP, Dr Susan Oman will present the book's ‘following the data’ approach to critical policy studies, presenting examples that look under the bonnet of well-being research for policy. 

In ‘following the data around’, Susan reveals gaps in policy evidence and knowledge practices, questioning what this means for understanding well-being and the negative social effects of these practices. Susan argues for shared understanding of the power and potential of well-being data, and the limits of their application in public policy to achieve a more understanding society.
