Sterkere verbindingen in regio Haaglanden (Dutch)

Brede welvaart verder onder druk door slechtere gezondheid (Dutch)

Vorig jaar is de brede welvaart erop achteruit gegaan in de dimensies subjectief welzijn, sociale contacten en huisvesting; dit jaar komt daar de dimensie gezondheid bij. Door een verbetering in de dimensies inkomen en baanzekerheid is de brede welvaart per saldo nauwelijks veranderd.
