The Human Flourishing Program at Harvard makes use of existing data sets and also aims to create new data resources to better study human flourishing. Some of the major data resources we have developed, or are developing, that make use of at least two waves of individual-level data, are described below.
Global Flourishing Study
International REACH Forgiveness Trial
Aetna Well-Being Assessment
Catholic Student Center Study
Work and Well-Being Surveys
- Secondary and Other Data Resources -
Many of our analyses and papers have made use of existing data resources concerning health and well-being including the Nurses’ Health Study (NHSI/NHSII), the Health Professionals Follow-Up Study (HPFS), the Growing Up Today Study (GUTS), the Mid-life in the United States Study (MIUDS), and the Health and Retirement Study (HRS). We also have a number of other data collection efforts in collaboration with the Columbus Foundation, Hangzhou University, the University of British Columbia, the Barna Group, and others, which are at earlier stages of development, with only a single wave of data, often directed at preliminary evidence on the properties of our various well-being measures.
