WHY DOES EQUITABLE WELL-BEING MATTER?
DATA FOR COMMUNITY EQUITY AND POWER
WHY WIN MEASURES EXISTS
Do you feel connected to your neighbors and your community? Do you feel safe in your neighborhood? Is your community set up to help all children and the elders to live a good life?
The Well Being In the Nation measures were developed with the input of over 100 organizations and communities working together to identify and try out measures that mattered to them.
We believe people know what matters to them. What matters to you matters to us! We can help you measure what matters.
What data is already out there for your community. WIN measures makes it easier for you to find data that matters to you–or to collect it yourself.
Ever wonder how we could:
- Be the wealthiest country in the world yet have one of the highest rates of child poverty?
- Have the “best” health care system in the world yet have such terrible health outcomes that youth today can expect to live shorter lives than their parents?
- Have so many means for social connection yet suffer from epidemics of social isolation and deaths of despair?
The Well Being In the Nation (WIN) Measures show connections between social conditions, health, community, and well-being. Created with 100+ organizations and communities and supported by the National Committee on Vital and Health Statistics.
Explore these simple, powerful measures to understand the big picture of our well-being as a nation. Dig into the data to see what shapes well-being for different groups in your community. Connect with others, especially those affected by inequities, to understand, develop solutions, and act. Together, we can strive to improve well-being for everyone in the nation.
What would you change about your neighborhood? What kind of neighborhood do you wish for your grandchildren?
We can help you make real change–both in how you do your work and in how you change the world–so that it is equitable, effective, and generative.
WHAT MEASURES OF RACIAL JUSTICE AND INTERGENERATIONAL WELL-BEING MATTER TO YOU?
Well-being and Equity (WE) in the World facilitates the updating of the WIN measures in a way that is created by and with communities, with support from national groups like the National Committee on Vital and Health Statistics, National Quality Forum and Healthy People 2030. We give communities a voice to choose the measures that matter to them.
Over the last two years, hundreds of community members, researchers, and federal agencies have been part of listening sessions to update these measures to add measures of racial justice and intergenerational well-being that matter to them. Join the conversation and the voting process!
