Hide / Show Abstract

This is the second edition of Society at a Glance: Asia/Pacific, the biennial OECD overview of social indicators. This report addresses the growing demand for quantitative evidence on the state of and trends in social well-being. It updates some indicators included in the first edition and adds some new ones. Additionally, this edition makes a considerable effort to return to the roots of the publication with its "At a Glance" overview. It reduces the number of indicators to 25. There is a strong focus on simple language and a shorter text. Charts and boxes are direct and simple and reflect a higher degree of standardisation. We believe that such an approach is essential in this increasingly information-rich age.
