Abstract

This thesis studies the determinants of subjective well-being, with the main focus on the data relating to developing countries. Chapters 2, 3, and 4 use new South African integrated household data to study the determinants of perceived quality of life at the cross-section. The fifth chapter compares the cross-sectional and over time structures of subjective economic well-being for Indonesia, whilst the sixth chapter uses reported well-being data from the British and Russian household panel surveys to test an ‘old’ economic hypothesis in a new way.
