Researchers: Sally McManus
Published: November 2016

Is the wellbeing of adults in Kent different to the rest of the country?

Aim

This study gives an indication of how wellbeing among adults living in Kent compares with that of adults living in the rest of England, on average.

The analysis formed part of a wider study McPin Foundation ran for Kent County Council about Wellbeing in Kent.

Publication

The report written about this study is for internal use only by Kent County Council.

Findings 

We found that the subjective wellbeing of adults living in the Kent County Council local authority area is similar to that of adults living in the rest of England. Patterns by age and gender were also similar in and out of Kent.     

Methods

We profiled wellbeing for the adult population of Kent, at the County Council local authority level by drawing on secondary analysis of two surveys: the Health Survey for England and Understanding Society.
