This report sets out the 'pre-story' of our approach to wellbeing
assessment and highlights findings that in Zambia, while economic status
makes the greatest difference to inner wellbeing, gender/marital status
comes a close second.
The report provides an overview of our findings on objective and
subjective aspects of wellbeing in Chiawa, Zambia, from our first round
of fieldwork there. It discusses the methodology we have developed to
assess wellbeing, the pitfalls we encountered and how we addressed them.
Finally, the report reflects on some of the ways that our results from
Zambia confirm or contrast with those from our research in India, set
out in a sister report.
