MEASURING WELL-BEING THROUGH OECD BETTER LIFE INDEX: MAPPING THE GAPS


ÁREA: 06. Strategy and Organizational Engineering

RESUMO:
The insufficiency of purely monetary indexes such as gross domestic product (GDP) created the need for indicators that incorporated the aspects of life that mattered to people and brought quality into their lives. One of the indicators of well-being developed in this context is the Better Life Index (BLI), designed by Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD). After the advances already achieved, it arises the need to explore the new gaps in this subject. This paper aims to map the research gaps of the BLI through a structured review of the published articles about the theme with the identification of the main applications and critics of the BLI model. It was identified that the BLI is becoming more relevant within the academia and is considered as a well-known and stablished well-being indicator. The authors are willing to develop new frameworks with the purpose of correcting BLI flaws, but a few do it while comparing data from different years, which should not be done. This paper contributes by providing a structured knowledge base on OECD Better Life Index, where authors interested in developing new studies using BLI can verify the tendencies of the theme and take advantage of a quick view of the academic publications on this subject.
