Regular and robust national wellbeing statistics and research are required in Malta to be able to compare the wellbeing of different segments of Maltese society, over time, and with other countries, to evaluate policy performance in wellbeing terms and to identify policy priorities.

The Wellbeing INDEX project is a strategic and over-arching initiative, led by the Malta Foundation for the Wellbeing of Society in collaboration with the University of Malta.

The name “INDEX” summarizes the project’s scope (Indicators, Networking, Data Visualisation, Exploration and eXchange). The project, launched in Parliament on the 10th December 2020, will pave the way for the measurement of wellbeing in Malta and evidence-based wellbeing policy.
