This report assesses well-being in the four largest urban agglomerations of the province of Córdoba and provides policy recommendations to strengthen regional development practices, and ultimately improve people’s well-being. Using around 30 statistical indicators, the report analyses the performance of Córdoba’s agglomerations in 12 well-being dimensions in comparison with 391 regions of 36 OECD countries and 98 regions of Brazil, Peru, Colombia and Costa Rica. The report also documents the well-being inequalities between Córdoba’s four agglomerations and suggests three priorities areas which the province should focus on to tackle well-being challenges: i) Ensure that well-being indicators guide future decision-making; ii) Continue strengthening and modernising the provincial statistical system to expand the evidence-base; and, iii) Strengthen governance arrangements for more effective, efficient and inclusive regional development policy outcomes.

Foreword

Measuring regional well-being is an important tool for local and regional governments to address the needs of citizens and identify the policy domains that can have the highest impact on people’s lives. This publication is part of the OECD’s How’s Life in Your Region series, which seeks to measure well-being at regional and local levels. The series was launched in 2014 as part of the OECD Better Life Initiative with the OECD report How’s Life in Your Region? (2014). Since then, the OECD has made available a set of well‑being indicators for more than 400 regions across 11 dimensions of life. This has also provided a framework to understand the role of regions and cities in the national well-being agendas. Examples include the two reports “Measuring well-being in Mexican states” (2015) and “Well-being in Danish cities” (2016).
