    Measuring Wellbeing to Help Communities Thrive

    春秋棋牌官方平台The city of Santa Monica wanted to incorporate wellbeing into city planning, policies, and programs. RAND researchers, as part of a team of experts, helped create a framework for measuring wellbeing and applying the findings to city planning.

Our cross-cutting research is housed in three programs:

  • Community Health and Environmental Policy

    春秋棋牌官方平台How do we create conditions and environments that support health and well-being?

    The Community Health and Environmental Policy program focuses on such topics as infrastructure, science and technology, community design, community health promotion, migration and population dynamics, transportation, energy, and climate and the environment, as well as other policy concerns that are influenced by the natural and built environment, technology, and community organizations and institutions that affect well-being.

  • Social and Behavioral Policy

    How do we actively promote policies, actions and behaviors that foster individual, family, household and social well-being?

    The Social and Behavioral Policy program advances solutions to improve the effectiveness of social programs; support marital and family well-being; raise people out of poverty, improve the lives of older adults, disabled populations, and their caregivers; and further the positive development of children, youth, and young adults. The program also develops and evaluates prevention and treatment programs to address substance use and abuse, mental health, active and independent living, and other factors that are critical for well-being.
