Wellbeing and buildings

In 2012, Dodge et al proposed that wellbeing could be defined as ‘…when individuals have the psychological, social and physical resources they need to meet a particular psychological, social and/or physical challenge’.

The 2013 Measuring National Well-being programme suggested that the factors most strongly associated with personal well-being are:

  • Health.
  • Employment status.
  • Relationship status.

Of these three factors, health had the strongest relationship with wellbeing.

The Measuring National Well-being national debate identified a range of other less significant factors associated with personal well-being, including:

  • Economic security.
  • Job satisfaction.
  • Work-life balance.
  • Education and training.
  • Local and natural environment.
