The value bank

In the Open Social Value Bank you will find values for the impact of social change on well-being. The value bank contains both monetized and non-monetized well-being values that can be used in e.g. social cost-benefit analyses, where both budgetary and social values are included. The values help promote socially and economically sustainable investments in society. OSVB continuously develops new values based on Danish data.

How does it work?

The value bank presents an overview of the value of a number of social parameters that affect wellbeing. The social values cover different life circumstances, including loneliness, unemployment, stress and addiction. The overview allows the user to apply relevant social values in their analysis and assessments.

This means that the assets may be used freely, but may not be resold, sublicensed or otherwise made available for sale without the written consent of OSVB.

Calculator (coming soon)

OSVB is working on launching a calculator that allows the user to estimate the value of social change. The calculator enables estimation of the monetary value of the social change resulting from a given social intervention. The calculator enables estimation both before and after an intervention is implemented. The tool generates a report that includes references to the methodology used, the calculation itself, the data source and an assessment of the quality of the data source.
