Report on wellbeing and poverty in Zambia published
28 September 2012
This latest report from Wellbeing and Poverty Pathways sets out the 'pre-story' of the project's approach to wellbeing assessment and presents preliminary findings on objective and subjective wellbeing in rural Zambia.
The report provides an overview of findings from a first round of fieldwork in Zambia which highlight that while economic status makes the greatest difference to inner wellbeing, gender/marital status comes a close second.
The report from the DFID/ESRC-funded research project based in the Centre for Development Studies also discusses the methodology developed to assess wellbeing, the pitfalls encountered and how they have been addressed.
