The GNH Index is a unique approach to measuring the wellbeing and happiness of the Bhutanese population, focusing on multiple indicators and domains that go beyond traditional economic metrics. GNH 2022, produced by the Centre for Bhutan & GNH Studies in the Royal Government of Bhutan, provides detailed insights into the measurements, analysis, and policy implications of the Gross National Happiness Index for 2022 and covers changes in happiness from 2010. The book highlights different typologies of happy people to deepen the Government of Bhutan’s understanding of the nature and causes of wellbeing and happiness, and guides for policies to accelerate GNH growth going forward.
