  • SDG 3: a Missed Opportunity to Transform Understandings and Monitoring of
           Health, Well-Being and Development'
    • Authors: Elizabeth Eckermann
      Pages: 261 - 272
      Abstract: The Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) initiative provided a window of opportunity to transform understandings of health and well-being to monitor progress in these areas across the globe between 2015 and 2030. SDG 3 on health and well-being is used to illustrate how this opportunity was missed. Despite widespread global consultations with stakeholders and a global climate of more holistic approaches to health and well-being, SDG3, along with many of the other SDGs, remains stuck in traditional twentieth century discourse about measures of progress. The reasons for this inertia and possible initiatives which might act as a catalyst for change are explored.

  • The Factor Structure of the Twelve Items General Health Questionnaire
           (GHQ-12): a Population Based Study
    • Authors: Nima Motamed; Shiva Edalatian Zakeri; Behnam Rabiee; Mansooreh Maadi; Mahmood Reza Khonsari; Hossein Keyvani; Seyed Hamzeh Hosseini; Farhad Zamani
      Pages: 303 - 316
      Abstract: Mental health is a key component of general health based on world health organization (WHO) definition of health. A short form of the general health questionnaire (GHQ-12) has been widely used as an assessment tool of general and mental health. This study was designed to evaluate the properties of the Persian version of this questionnaire. Of 6140 subjects aged 10–90 years of a cohort study of Northern Iran, the relevant data of 5074 individuals aged ≥18 years were considered for analysis. Confirmatory factor analysis was conducted to evaluate the six models including one-dimensional model, one-dimensional model with correlated errors on negative items, two-dimensional model based on negative and positive statement items, two-dimensional model based on social dysfunction and psychological distress, three-dimensional model based on anxiety/depression, social dysfunction and loss of confidence and finally one-dimensional model with an additional factor for the negatively phrased items. The best fit indices belonged to one-dimensional model with correlated errors on negative items with χ2 = 686.8, df = 39, CFI = 0.953, RMSEA = 0.057 (95%CI: 0.054–0.061), SRMR = 0.0317, AGFI = 0.952, TLI = 0.920 and AIC = 764.8 and also three-dimensional model with χ2 = 860.7, df = 51, CFI = 0.941, RMSEA = 0.056 (95%CI: 0.053–0.059), SRMR = 0.0343, AGFI = 0.955, TLI = 0.923 and AIC = 915.0. In the comparison between these two best models we had ∆χ2 = 174.2, ∆df = 12, p-value < 0.001 in favor of the one-dimensional model. One-dimensional model with correlated errors on negative items showed the best fitting indices with our population.

  • Influential Factors of Poverty Dynamics among Korean Households that
           Include the Aged with Disability
    • Authors: Eun-Young Park; Su-Jung Nam
      Pages: 317 - 331
      Abstract: The purpose of this longitudinal study was to examine closely the economic status of households that include the aged with disabilities in South Korea, as well as the factors contributing to their poverty dynamics. This study analyzed the poverty dynamics of households that include the aged with disabilities by using data from the Panel Survey of Employment for the Disabled for the years 2008 to 2012. This Survey is conducted by the Korea Employment Agency for the Disabled. Poverty dynamics were classified by the changes in poverty status in 2008 and 2012, including sustained poverty, sustained non-poverty, poverty exit, and poverty entry. We carried out a multinomial logistic regression for poverty dynamics based on demographics and analyzed the differences of income composition and consumption patterns according to poverty dynamics. Gender, education, degree of disability, economic activity, and change in the number of employed family members were identified as significant factors that determine poverty dynamics.

  • The Effects of Shopping Well-Being and Shopping Ill-Being on Consumer Life
    • Authors: Ahmet Ekici; M. Joseph Sirgy; Dong-Jin Lee; Grace B. Yu; Michael Bosnjak
      Pages: 333 - 353
      Abstract: Individuals hold two distinct sets of beliefs about shopping activities: Positive beliefs regarding the degree to which shopping contributes to quality of life (shopping well-being), and negative beliefs related to the degree to which shopping activities result in overspending time, effort, and money (shopping ill-being). Shopping well-being and shopping ill-being are conceptualized as independent constructs in that shopping ill-being is not treated as negative polar of a single dimension. That is, one can experience both shopping well-being as well as shopping ill-being, simultaneously. We hypothesized that (1) shopping well-being is a positive predictor of life satisfaction, (2) shopping ill-being is a negative predictor of life satisfaction, and (3) shopping well-being does contribute to life satisfaction under conditions of low than high shopping ill-being. The study surveyed 1035 respondents in the UK. The study results supported hypotheses 1 and 3, not Hypothesis 2. The paper discusses the implications of these findings for retailers, macro-marketers, and policy makers.

  • Happiness is Flextime
    • Authors: Adam Okulicz-Kozaryn; Lonnie Golden
      Pages: 355 - 369
      Abstract: We study how work a schedule flexibility (flextime) affects happiness. We use a US General Social Survey (GSS) pooled dataset containing the Quality of Worklife and Work Orientations modules for 1998, 2002, 2006, 2010, and 2014. We retain only respondents who are either full-time or part-time employees on payrolls. For flextime to be associated with greater happiness, it has to be more than just sometimes flexible or slight input into one’s work schedule, that is, little flextime does not increase happiness. But substantial flextime has a large effect on happiness–the size effect is about as large as that of household income, or about as large as a one-step increase in self-reported health, such as up from good to excellent health. Our findings provide support for both public and organizational policies that would promote greater work schedule flexibility or control for employees.

  • Primary and Secondary Caregiver Reports of Quality of Life in Pediatric
           Asthma: Are they Comparable'
    • Authors: Robin S. Everhart; Jessica L. Greenlee; Marcia A. Winter; Barbara H. Fiese
      Pages: 371 - 383
      Abstract: This study aimed to compare primary and secondary caregiver QOL within families of children with asthma and determine the potential importance of including secondary caregiver QOL in clinical and research settings. Participants included 118 families of children with asthma that had primary and secondary caregivers. Families completed measures in a single research session. Caregivers reported on QOL, psychological functioning, and family burden; children completed a measure of QOL. Child lung function was determined from objective spirometry. Adherence to prescribed controller medication was measured for 6 weeks following the research visit. Primary caregiver QOL was significantly lower than secondary caregiver QOL (Mean overall QOL of 5.85 versus 6.17, p < .05). Better medication adherence was associated with higher primary caregiver QOL (ρ = .22, p = .02); secondary caregiver QOL, not primary caregiver QOL, was positively associated with child QOL (ρ = .20, p = .03). Families with discrepant QOL scores between caregivers (difference in scores of at least .50) were characterized by more family burden and primary caregiver psychological symptoms. Differences in QOL scores between caregivers may be a reflection of primary caregivers’ greater investment in daily asthma management. In families reporting low burden and few psychological difficulties in the primary caregiver, QOL assessments from either caregiver may may be informative and representative of how parents are adapting to child asthma. In families experiencing high levels of burden or more primary caregiver psychological difficulties, QOL reports from secondary caregivers may not be as clinically meaningful.

  • Factor Structure and Internal Consistency of a Spanish Version of the
           Family Quality of Life (FaQoL)
    • Authors: Pau García-Grau; R. A. McWilliam; Gabriel Martínez-Rico; María D. Grau-Sevilla
      Pages: 385 - 398
      Abstract: This study examines the factor structure and internal consistency of the Spanish version of the Family Quality of Life scale (FaQoL). After translating and back-translating the instrument, we administered it to 324 families with a child with disabilities or developmental delays or who was at risk and who was enrolled in an early intervention (EI) program. Families were recruited from EI services in Spain, from 12 autonomous communities. Children’s average age was 38.6 months. Results showed the FaQoL scores had high internal consistency. Confirmatory factor analysis showed an adequate fit with the original factors, even slightly higher than the original four-factor solution. These results allow factors scores to be used reliably with Spanish families.

  • The Five Dimensions of Money Attitudes and Their Link to Changes in Life
           Satisfaction Among Taiwanese Adolescents in Poverty
    • Authors: Fang-Hua Jhang
      Pages: 399 - 418
      Abstract: The current study examined the factorial structure of money attitudes and the relationship between changes in money attitudes and life satisfaction (LS) by using confirmatory factor analysis and multiple regression analysis to analyze a 2-year longitudinal database. The representative samples consisted of 906 Taiwanese adolescents in poverty. Compared with other competing models, results provided support for the five-factor structure of the adapted money attitude scale (MAS). Findings revealed that the relationship between changes in MAS power/prestige and LS was negative, whereas the association between changes in MAS quality and LS was positive. The results also showed that changes in MAS retention/time did not relate to changes in LS. The present study contributes to the understanding of the association between poor adolescents’ money attitudes and their LS in a Confucian context from the perspective of upward social comparison. The findings suggest that avoiding overemphasizing the importance of money and reducing comparison orientation may be the effective methods of improving LS for economically disadvantaged adolescents in Confucian culture.

  • On the Concept of Well-Being in Japan: Feeling Shiawase as Hedonic
           Well-Being and Feeling Ikigai as Eudaimonic Well-Being
    • Authors: Michiko Kumano
      Pages: 419 - 433
      Abstract: This study clarified characteristics of well-being in Japan, specifically differences between feeling shiawase and feeling ikigai, to elucidate how they relate to eudaimonic well-being and hedonic well-being. Participants were 846 Japanese in their 30s (418 men, 428 women), who responded to a web-based survey. Questionnaire items comprised level of shiawase/ikigai, the presence of a difference between feeling shiawase and feeling ikigai, and, in an open-ended question, the difference between feeling shiawase and feeling ikigai. Results revealed that feeling shiawase is primarily characterized by such feelings as delight and peace; it is oriented toward the present. Feeling ikigai entails actions of devoting oneself to pursuits one enjoys and is associated with feelings of accomplishment and fulfillment. Furthermore, it includes awareness of values such as the purpose of life and the meaning of existence; it is future oriented, as in goal seeking. This study verifies that for Japanese, feeling shiawase is close to hedonic well-being and feeling ikigai is close to eudaimonic well-being. This suggests that it is important to approach Japanese well-being not in technical terms such as eudaimonic well-being; rather, Japanese well-being should be comprehended in terms of ikigai which is an aspect of daily conversation in Japan.

  • A Configurational Role of Human Capital Resources in the Quality of Work
           Life of Marketers: FsQCA and SEM Findings from Vietnam
    • Authors: Nguyen Dinh Tho
      Pages: 461 - 478
      Abstract: Drawing upon the principle of goal selection and key resource theories, this study proposes that human capital resources of marketers comprise both marketing capital (MarCap) and psychological capital (PsyCap) and that combinations of MarCap and PsyCap will enhance the quality of work life (QWL) of marketers. FsQCA (fuzzy-set qualitative comparative analysis) findings, based on a sample of 396 marketers in Vietnam, reveal that combinations of PsyCap components and MarCap components form an INUS (insufficient but necessary part of a condition which is itself unnecessary but sufficient for the result) condition for QWL. Overall, the study sheds light on human capital resources of marketers by addressing the importance of fit between MarCap and PsyCap. Accordingly, to enhance QWL of marketers, firms should work towards establishing appropriate human resource policies and practices that are able to develop a fit between MarCap and PsyCap of marketers.

  • Putting a Price tag on Healthy Behavior: The Monetary Value of Sports
           Participation to Individuals
    • Authors: Johannes Orlowski; Pamela Wicker
      Pages: 479 - 499
      Abstract: This study estimates the monetary value of sports and physical activity applying the compensation variation method. While previous studies put a price tag on various health conditions, this study assigns a monetary value to healthy behavior, such as participation in sports and physical activity. Data from the German Socio-Economic Panel (1992–2013) are used for the analysis (n = 191,828). A generalized ordered response model is estimated to take the heterogeneity in the dependent variable, a single-item life satisfaction measure, into account. The results show that females (males) would be willing to forgo between €195 and €840 (€330 and €790) of their monthly net income in order to participate in sports and physical activity several times a year. A higher frequency of participation is associated with higher monetary values: females (males) are willing to forgo between €552 and €1281 (€491 and €1483) of their monthly net income to participate in sports or exercise at least once a month and between €577 and €1471 (€577 and €1662) to participate at least once a week, respectively, compared to not participating at all. Evidently, participation in sports and physical activity improves individuals’ life satisfaction and is of substantial value to individuals. The findings have implications for health economists, policy makers, and the courts. This study contributes to the literature examining the relationship between sports participation and well-being.

  • Low-Risk, Moderate-Risk, and Recreational Gambling Among Older Adults:
           Self-Complexity as a Buffer for Quality of Life
    • Authors: Margo Hilbrecht; Steven E. Mock
      Abstract: Gambling is a popular activity among older adults that has potential for growth as the population ages. Benefits have been identified for recreational gamblers (those experiencing no gambling-related problems), but there are many social, financial, and health harms affecting quality of life related to gambling across the spectrum of risk levels. Because of their greater numbers, low and moderate risk (LMR) older adult gamblers are responsible for higher levels of population harm. Therefore, this study examines outcomes experienced by older adults who participate in gambling at recreational and LMR levels to better understand protective factors that contribute to quality of life. Guided by activity theory and a modified self-complexity model, we explore how leisure complexity and employment buffer the relationship between gambler type and factors associated with well-being, namely social support (both perceived and received) and stress. A sub-sample of 3232 adults, age 55 years and older, who gambled in the past year was drawn from the 2013–2014 Canadian Community Health Survey. Data were analyzed using linear regression with moderation, focusing on the interactions of gambling risk level with leisure complexity and employment. Recreational gamblers reported greater role complexity and more diverse leisure lifestyles, both of which were associated with greater social support and reduced stress. Life stress was higher among older adults who worked for pay. Even so, having a job appeared to temper stress levels among LMR gamblers, suggesting the importance of maintaining a diversity of social roles and leisure activities, where possible, to enhance quality of life.

  • When and how Workplace Social Support Improves Family Performance
    • Authors: Aneel Kumar; Khalil Ahmed Channa; Niaz Ahmed Bhutto
      Abstract: This research investigates the simple and conditional indirect effects of emotional and instrumental family related social support from coworkers on relationship and task family performance. Work to family enrichment is incorporated as mediator and family role salience as the conditional moderator. Primary data were collected through the Likert type of survey questionnaire from the employees working in banking sector of Pakistan (N = 401). It was found that emotional and instrumental family related social support from coworkers have significant effect on relationship and task family performance. Further, the effect of emotional support were more on relationship and the effect of instrumental were more on task family performance. Work to family enrichment was found as mediator in the relationship between social support types and family performance types. Family role salience was found as the conditional moderator in the indirect relationship between both types of social support and both types of family performance. This study will help managerial practitioners and researchers to understand the direct and conditional indirect effects of two specific types of social support (i.e., emotional and instrumental) on two specific types of family performance (i.e., relationship and task).

  • General Education Learning Outcomes and Demographic Correlates in
           University Students in Hong Kong
    • Authors: Lu Yu; Daniel T. L. Shek; Xiaoqin Zhu
      Abstract: Although there are studies showing that higher education would benefit university students, empirical research that comprehensively assesses student general education learning outcomes and related demographic correlates based on longitudinal data is minimal, especially in the Chinese context. To address the research gaps, the present study was conducted to investigate learning outcomes amongst university students in one university in Hong Kong based on a four-year longitudinal design (N = 460). Four dimensions of student general education learning outcomes were measured, including effective reasoning and problem solving, leadership, moral character, and integration of learning. Results suggested a U-shaped pattern of student learning outcomes for most dimensions, with no improvement or even a decrement in the second year and a steady growth thereafter. While family background did not affect student development, gender showed a significant moderating effect on students’ development in two dimensions (i.e., effective reasoning and problem solving, and integration of learning). These findings suggest that students benefit from general education-embedded university study in multiple dimensions, especially after the first year of transition period. Practical implications of the findings and future research directions were also discussed.

  • Does Service Leadership Education Contribute to Student Well-Being' A
           Quasi-Experimental Study Based on Hong Kong University Students
    • Authors: Li Lin; Daniel T. L. Shek
      Abstract: Leadership programs have become increasingly prevalent in tertiary institutions, but rigorous evaluation research on their effectiveness on student development, particularly student well-being is inadequate. This study examined the effectiveness of a credit-bearing leadership course entitled “Service Leadership” in promoting leadership capacities and well-being of university students using a pretest-posttest quasi-experimental design. Based on a sample of Hong Kong university students (experimental group: n = 75; control group, n = 105), we found that students in the experimental group (i.e., those taking the course) showed a greater improvement in service leadership knowledge, service leadership attitudes, and life satisfaction than those in the control group (i.e., those not taking the course) after taking the course. Besides, changes in life satisfaction and positive youth development were positively related to the change in service leadership attitudes but not service leadership knowledge. The implications of the findings on leadership education and holistic development of university students are discussed.

  • Social Integration may Moderate the Relationship between Neighborhood
    • Authors: Amber L. Pearson; Richard C. Sadler; Daniel J. Kruger
      Abstract: Long-term residence in neighborhoods is thought to promote the development and maintenance of supportive relationships and trust. These strong social ties may, however, be limited in communities in post-industrial cities characterized by high levels of vacant properties. This study aimed to examine the relationship between neighborhood vacancy and mental health with adjustment for length of residence and possible moderation by social (dis)integration in a sample of Flint, MI, residents. We found that short-term (but not long-term) increases in neighborhood vacancy were associated with poorer mental health, after adjustment for individual covariates. When considering neighborhood vacancy, length of residence and individual covariates, however, the only significant association detected was between higher social disintegration and lower wellbeing. This effect was direct and not mediated by other factors. In this way, it appears that the social conditions of neighborhoods may be important, particularly in places that have experienced declines in the built environment. In addition, we identified evidence that social integration moderates the relationship between neighborhood vacancy and mental health outcomes. The level of neighborhood vacancies had a weaker relationship to wellbeing among those with higher levels of social ties. But none of the independent variables in our study were able to predict social integration, highlighting some potential areas for future research. From these findings, we posit that establishing strong social connections can buffer residents against negative mental health outcomes, and health promotion efforts could usefully assist in maintaining social ties among neighbors.

  • Socio-Medical and Personality Correlates of Psychological Well-Being among
           People Living with HIV: a Latent Profile Analysis
    • Authors: Marcin Rzeszutek; Ewa Gruszczyńska; Ewa Firląg-Burkacka
      Abstract: The aim of this study was to examine the heterogeneity of the sample of people living with HIV (PLWH) in terms of psychological well-being (PWB) using the latent profile analysis. Participants were 530 people with confirmed diagnosis of HIV+. The study was cross-sectional with psychological well-being operationalized by health related quality of life (WHO Quality of Life-BREF), satisfaction with life (Satisfaction with Life Scale) and positive and negative general affect (PANAS-X). The Big Five personality traits were measured with the NEO-FFI questionnaire. Additionally, socio-medical data were obtained. The statistical analysis proved the heterogeneity of PWB among the studied patient group: model with 6 different PWB profiles was best-fitted to the data. Employment, education, and personality traits, especially neuroticism, turned out to be significant for PWB profile membership. In contrast, medical variables were not related to the PWB profile membership among participants. Research on PWB among PLWH in so called person-centred approach by distinguishing their different subgroups may be an adjunct to develop more effective methods of psychological counselling for PLWH, especially in the light of findings that objective health status is not necessarily a strong explanatory variable of PWB’s variance in these patients.
