THE MEASUREMENT AND MEANING OF SOCIAL WELL-BEING

The concept of using transport to improve social well-being can only be pursued effectively if a clear meaning can be attached to the concept and also measures of social well-being can be defined precisely enough to enable alternative transport policies to be generated and assessed. The purpose of the paper is to stimulate discussion on the measurement and meaning of social well-being and to critically examine some transport-oriented measures that currently serve as a means of identifying the role of transport in relation to social well-being.
