PRODUCTS IMPACT PEOPLE AND ORGANIZATIONS AND NATURE
PRODUCTS ARE THE LINK BETWEEN PEOPLE (CONSUMERS) AND THE PRODUCTION ECONOMY
THE FLOW OF PRODUCTS FROM PRODUCTION TO CONSUMPTION DEGRADES THE ENVIRONMENT
For myself, these are the various issues that I think about ... for myself, and also for others:

  1. (1) Clean air
  2. (2) Clean water
  3. (3) Healthy food
  4. (4) Energy
  5. (5) Healthcare
  6. (6) Education / skills training
  7. (7) Transport
  8. (8) Physical safety / security
  9. (9) Religious / spiritual freedom
  10. (10) Recreation
  11. (11) Cultural activities
  12. (12) Community cohesion
MY OWN STATE OF:
  1. (a) Happiness
  2. (b) Home / shelter
  3. (c) Material goods
  4. (d) Job / employment / income
  5. (e) Opportunities
  6. (f) Health / Wellness
  7. (g) Wealth
  8. (h) Relationships / family
  9. (i) Relationships / friends
  10. (j) Stress
  11. (k) Longevity
As to measurement, it is difficult to get at an 'absolute' number that has any meaning. On the other hand it is much easier to get some measure that is 'relative' and will show trends.

So ... my current thinking in this regard is as follows:
  • ... For each of the above elements, consider 1 to be the value that reflects a decent quality of life ... from your individual perspective.
  • ... For each of the elements, then give each a number that reflects how you are relative to a decent quality of life ... so 0.5 will represent being a long way short of being where you want to be, and 1.5 will reflect you being at a situation that is really very good.
  • ... Do this exercise for how you figure you are at the present time.
  • ... Then do the same thing, thinking back to where you were at some time in the past ... a year ago ... or perhaps 10 years ago.
  • ... Then do it again, but this time thinking forward to where you can reasonably expect to be in a year's time into the future.

QUALITY OF LIFE
There are many components to Quality of Life
... everyone needs certain basics in order to survive;
... beyond that, more stuff adds to the enjoyment of life;
... at some point a more and more stuff adds little to quality of life!.

TrueValueMetrics (TVM) is an Open Source / Open Knowledge initiative. It has been funded by family and friends. TVM is a 'big idea' that has the potential to be a game changer. The goal is for it to remain an open access initiative.
WE WANT TO MAINTAIN AN OPEN KNOWLEDGE MODEL
A MODEST DONATION WILL HELP MAKE THAT HAPPEN
