We’ve added three new additional modules to the Happiness Pulse – making it possible to understand how people’s wellbeing is connected to their workplace, housing or active life. You can add these new question sets (as well as the Community Pulse additional question module) onto the core Happiness Pulse question domains with an Advanced package.
“We’ve developed these modules to give people greater insight into the conditions that shape people’s wellbeing and give users of the Happiness Pulse actionable insight into how to improve it” explained Wren Aigaki Lander, Centre for Thriving Places Head of Development. “The new modules make it easy to measure and understand wellbeing as well as get a sense of how work, home or physical activity affects how people feel without having to ask respondents to fill out different surveys.”
The questions in the additional modules have been put together based on in-depth research into best practice for wellbeing measurement in these areas, and where possible source questions and answer scales from industry-leading surveys from organisations such as the Office for National Statistics and the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government.
An Advanced Happiness Pulse package allows you to collect wellbeing data for up to ten different groups of respondents – allowing you to measure wellbeing across projects, teams and locations and see differences across demographics such as ethnicity and gender. The core Happiness Pulse question modules have been taken by more than 30,000 users and results are compared to a nationally representative sample survey by YouGov in 2018.

The new question modules were developed with funding support from Innovation 4 Growth.
