THE MEASUREMENT AND MEANING OF SOCIAL WELL-BEING

This paper attempts to stimulate debate on the measurement and meaning of social well-being. Instead of providing a comprehensive overview of the literature, or providing a solution, it sets out some pointers for discussion, and critically examines some transport-oriented measures that currently serve as a proxy for identifying the role of transport in relation to social well-being. It is argued that, though ultimately transport has implications for many facets of society, the primary research requirement is the development of the social dimension of a broader framework for transport policy.
