The Sainsbury's Living Well Index
The Living Well Index fell by 0.5 points to 60.7 compared to launch, with much of this drop apparently linked to seasonal factors.
The Living Well Index (LWI) was launched last year by Sainsbury's in partnership with Oxford Economics and the National Centre for Social Research.
