This report is part of the ONS Measuring National Well-being Programme, which aims to produce accepted and trusted measures of the well-being of the nation.

The amount and quality of social connections with people around us are an essential part of our well-being. The report focuses on close family relationships, both the form that those relationships take as well as the quality of those relationships. However, these relationships do not operate in isolation, and for this reason friendships and other relationships in the wider community and the workplace are also analysed.
