Using both Bayesian Model Averaging (BMA), Weighted Average Least Squares (WALS) and Mallows Model Averaging (MMA) approaches to tackle the issue of model uncertainty on a panel datset of 30 African countries over the period 2006-2017, we identify a total of 13 economic, social, cultural, historical, structural and institutional factors which influence the well-being of Africans
