World Well-Being Project

The World Well-Being Project (WWBP) is pioneering techniques for measuring psychological and medical well-being based on language in social media. As a collaboration between computer scientists, psychologists, and statisticians, we are shedding new light on the psychosocial processes that affect health and happiness and exploring the potential for our unobtrusive well-being measures to supplement -- and in part replace -- expensive survey methods. Ultimately, we hope that our insights and analyses will help individuals, organizations, and governments choose actions and policies that are not just in the best economic interest of the people or companies, but which truly improve their well-being.
