Wellbeing: defining high and low scores

An attempt to categorise and define wellbeing scores from the ONS Annual Population Survey data from April to October 2011.



We can present and analyse subjective wellbeing data in a variety of ways including average levels and by groups representing high, medium and low values. This report demonstrates how grouping the data into 4 bands is a useful approach to presenting and communicating the information.
