Having discussed definitions of wellbeing in the previous lecture, in this lecture we turn to how it can be measured and analysed. The lecture will begin with innovative approaches from the national and international literature and then turn to how research on wellbeing has been incorporated into public policy design and evaluation. The discussion will then focus on sources of data on Indigenous wellbeing in Australia and internationally with the final part of the lecture considering the various measures of wellbeing that can be drawn from this data. A key feature of this lecture will be a discussion of newly available data sources.
