”, which contains analysis oindicators on dierent aspects o

countries and which strives to oer
a more comprehensive picture o
people’s lives; and «Your Better Lie
Index» ( www.oecdbetterlieindex.org ), an innovative and interactive
tool which enables citizens to rate
countries on those things whichmake or a better lie accordingto their personal experience andevaluation. The OECD well-being
