Levelling Up: Missions and Metrics - Analysis of Mission 8

Levelling Up: Missions and Metrics

“The Levelling Up White Paper sets out twelve missions that support key levelling up objectives. These outline the medium-term ambition for the UK Government and act as an anchor for the expectations and plans of the private sector and civil society.”

The Rural Services Network has explored the missions and metrics and as part of their membership offer, has created an analysis for each local authority in SPARSE membership of RSN.  This shows  their position compared to other rural local authorities and the England Average.  This enables the council to see their performance for each of the measures that the Government says it will be focusing on.

Mission 8: By 2030, well-being will have improved in every area of the UK, with the gap between top performing and other areas closing.

How does this mission relate to spatial disparities?

Well-being captures the extent to which people across the UK lead happy and fulfilling lives – the overarching objective for levelling up.

Metrics considered within the analysis:

Mean score (out of 10) for life satisfaction
Mean score (out of 10) for feeling that things done in life are worthwhile
Mean score (out of 10) for happiness yesterday
Mean score (out of 10) for anxiety yesterday
