Living Standard

We are interested in measurement of living standards that include production from hunting and herding-related activities as well as jobs and other sources of income. We have discussed measures of production specific to harvesting and use of traditional foods and jobs in other concept categories. We are also interested in material measures of living standards. Subjective measures are discussed under the concept of well-being.
