The Life in the UK index is a three-year demonstrator project designed to measure the collective wellbeing of the people of the UK, looking at social, economic, environmental, and democratic aspects of life.  This landmark research, conducted in partnership with Ipsos, is based on a survey of more than 6900 people.

This insights paper presents further detail on the inequalities we identified in collective, social, economic, environmental and democratic wellbeing by different age groups in the UK. It reveals that older age groups are, on balance, doing better than younger age groups.
