The present research collects, organizes, and analyzes the data and information about the well-being current status among the countries along the new silk road—“one belt, one road (OBOR)” initiative. We aim to, through the study, get a better understanding of the member countries’ development, not only economic but more importantly social development and progress, and seek to track the data in subsequent years to investigate the potential impact of OBOR project on the well-being of member countries.
Well-being, and well-being inequality among OBOR countries
We collected the data from Gallup World Poll (GWP) for 64 countries along the new silk road over the years 2015~2016. Emotional well-being and judgmental well-being are separately investigated and compared among the countries, and we also rank the well-being inequality status among OBOR countries.
Changes in well-being, and well-being inequality among OBOR countries
To see the growth and progress in well-being level and well-being inequality, we further calculate the changes in well-being, and well-being inequality among OBOR countries from 2009~2010 to 2015~2016.
Well-being distribution of OBOR countries among different regions and economic development
Well-being score and distribution have different characteristics among different regions and economic development. To see this difference, we draw relevant histograms of well-being among OBOR countries across various regions and economic development.
