Active Questionnaires

International Wellbeing Study

Beginning in March 2009, this is the first study of its kind to look in depth at people's wellbeing from around the world. If you chose to participate, you’ll be helping us to answer some of the most tantalising questions that our society faces today!

This study is completely anonymous, easy to do, takes about 25 to 30 minutes for each assessment point, and participants don’t have to give any of their personal details. The only participation requirements is that participants are at least 16 years old and that they agree to fill out these questions every three months for a year; five times in total.
