Show Summary Details


In order to identify usable indices, measures of well‐being are classified according to whether they are based on well‐being's constituents (e.g. health) or their commodity determinants (e.g. food and nutrition). For practical purposes, it is often simpler to construct measures based on well‐being's commodity determinants.

Keywords: commodity determinants; food; health; nutrition; well‐being index; well‐being measures
