GDP well-being

Since 2009, the Luxembourg government has endeavoured to analyse more closely the ‘GDP well-being’, a notion supplementing that of traditional GDP, which measures solely production of goods and services or economic growth.

Accordingly, together with the social partners, that is to say the trade unions and employers’ representatives, the government has decided to determine 63 indicators which will enable the GDP of well-being to be measured. Those indicators are to include factors as different as employment, housing, mobility, health, social life, etc.

The mechanism has been developed in collaboration with the National Statistics and Economic Studies Institute (Institut national de la statistique et des études économiques, STATEC) of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, the Economic and Social Council (Conseil économique et social, CES) and the Higher Council for Sustainable Development (Conseil supérieur pour un développement durable, CSDD).
