This is the fourth edition of Society at a Glance, the OECD bi‐annual compendium of social indicators. This report attempts to satisfy the growing demand for quantitative evidence on whether our societies are getting more or less equal, healthier, and cohesive. It updates some of the indicators included in the first three editions, and adds new ones including measures of childcare costs, poverty persistence, health inequalities and trust in political institutions. This report also includes two special chapters: i) a "guide" to help readers in understanding the structure of OECD social indicators; and ii) an attempt to take stock of the role of social indicators for the broader agenda of measuring the well‐being of OECD citizens and societies. More detailed information on all indicators, including those not in this edition, can be found on the OECD web pages ( indicators/sag).
