About the product

World leaders are increasingly acknowledging that Gross Domestic Product (GDP) alone cannot provide a full picture of a country’s progress. Enhancing human development and wellbeing requires people accessing the opportunities and means to live healthy, happy and satisfactory lives. This Report for Timor-Leste puts the well-being of young people, three quarters of the country’s population, at the centre of the development agenda. By measuring the subjective wellbeing of youth aged 15 to 34 across eight aspects of life based on a nationwide survey, this report provides an excellent opportunity for decision makers to implement targeted policies and strategic investments based on an in-depth understanding of youth’s aspirations, attitudes and behaviours.
