Measuring Youth Well-Being

The MYWEB project has taken a balanced approach to assess the feasibility of implementing a European Longitudinal Study for Children and Young People (ELSCYP) on the topic of well-being, prioritising both scientific and policy imperatives. A consortium of researchers from 11 European countries and from a variety of disciplinary backgrounds have come together to conduct this cross-national study.

Key project findings and recommendations

Key features of the study have been.

  • A survey of experts to identify key areas on the topic of well-being, as well as key areas of potential policy reform.
  • Interviews with children and young people themselves to find out what issues surrounding well-being are the most relevant to their lives.
  • A pilot study of a set of survey questions in six countries with children aged seven and eight.
  • Working together with young people’s advisory groups.
