  • Marital Status Transitions and Self-Reported Health among Canadians: A
           Life Course Perspective
    • Authors: Sara Zella
      Pages: 303 - 325
      Abstract: This study focuses on the relationship between marital status transitions (the formation and dissolution of unions) and the self-reported health of adults in Canada. Empirical research has found that those in intimate unions generally enjoy better mental and physical health than the unattached and the dissolution of a union causes distress both for men and for women. Much remains to be understood about the effects of marital status transitions on health, especially from a life course perspective. This study poses the following research questions: do the number of marital status transitions and the kind of marital status transitions (from single to cohabitant; from single to married; from cohabitant to married and from married to divorce) affect health over time? Does difference between genders exist in this relationship? Data come from the nine cycles of the Canadian National Population Health Survey (1994–2011) and random-intercept logistic regression models are estimated to address these questions. Results do suggest that marital status transitions play a crucial role in determining health over time. Controlling for socio-demographic characteristics, marriage and cohabitation are associated with better physical and mental health, and depression symptoms are clearly stronger in cases of the dissolution of unions. Differences between genders are also evident.

  • Political Participation and Wellbeing in the Netherlands: Exploring the
           Causal Links
    • Authors: André Pirralha
      Pages: 327 - 341
      Abstract: Does political participation make individuals more satisfied with their lives? Scholars of classical philosophy and participatory democracy suggest that participation in political activities is indeed a fundamental tenet of individual wellbeing. However, even though political participation is one of the most intensively studied topics in political science for decades, the relationship with individual wellbeing only recently started to gather some attention. So far, the existing empirical research has come to inconclusive results. In this study, we first re-examine the theoretical relationships between political participation and wellbeing. Secondly, using panel data from the Netherlands, we assess empirically the causal relations between taking part in political activities and individual life satisfaction. We give special attention to the role of political efficacy in this relationship. Employing structural equation modeling and correcting for measurement error, we find no evidence of a substantive effect of political participation on life satisfaction.

  • Development and Validation of the Social Emotional Health
           Survey–Higher Education Version
    • Authors: Michael J. Furlong; Sukkyung You; Mark Shishim; Erin Dowdy
      Pages: 343 - 367
      Abstract: We report on the development of the Social Emotional Health Survey-Higher Education (SEHS-HE), a multidimensional measure of covitality (the combinatorial effects of multiple positive psychological constructs). Scale development was carried out over 18 months involving five phases: conceptual grounding and item pool generation; cognitive interviews and item refinement; pilot survey and item reduction; structural validation survey and analyses; and, validity and stability analyses. Starting with a pool of 72 items, item selection and reduction was carried out using a sample of 771 college students. A second sample of 1,413 students (63.5 % female, mean age 20.0 years) completed the refined 48-item measure. Confirmatory factor analyses found acceptable fit for the SEHS-HE higher-order covitality latent structure. A final set of 36 items consisted of four latent traits (each comprised of three measured subscales): belief-in-self (subscales: self-efficacy, persistence, self-awareness), belief-in-others (subscales: family support, institutional support, peer support), emotional competence (subscales: cognitive reappraisal, empathy, self-regulation), and engaged living (subscales: gratitude, zest, optimism). Complete invariance was found for males and females with small effect size differences on latent mean scores. Evidence supported the SEHS-HE total score’s concurrent and predictive validity for students’ subjective well-being (r = .72, r = .65, respectively) and psychological distress (r = −.56, r = −.45, respectively). The 4-month stability coefficient for the SEHS-HE total score was .82, indicating it measures trait-like psychological constructs. The discussion focuses on the uses of the SEHS-HE in support of mental health programs, and refinement of the conceptual understanding of the covitality construct.

  • Well-Being During Recession in the UK
    • Authors: David Bayliss; Wendy Olsen; Pierre Walthery
      Pages: 369 - 387
      Abstract: This article explores the impact of the recent recession on the well-being of the UK working age population by comparing two measures of well-being. One is a measure of evaluative subjective well-being, a measure which previous research has shown to be stable in the UK throughout the economic crisis. The second is a different but complementary measure of positive psychological health. By comparing the trajectories of these two measures using the same sample and modelling techniques the analysis examines how different measures may lead to different interpretations. Six waves of longitudinal data from Understanding Society and the British Household Panel Survey (BHPS) are used. Latent curve models are used to analyse change over time. The results corroborate previous research showing that people’s evaluative subjective well-being remained relatively stable, on average, throughout the economic crisis. In contrast, the positive psychological health measure was found to decline significantly during the recession period. The paper highlights that what we measure matters. Using single measures as summaries of well-being masks the complexity of the term, and given their appeal in the social policy arena, single measures of well-being can be seen as problematic in some scenarios.

  • The Impact of Personal and Environmental Characteristics on Quality of
           Life of People with Intellectual Disability
    • Authors: Cristina Simões; Sofia Santos
      Pages: 389 - 408
      Abstract: The main purpose of this research was to examine the factors that can affect or predict the quality of life (QOL) of people with intellectual disability (ID). Two groups of factors were analyzed: (a) personal characteristics (gender, diagnosis, and age) and (b) environmental characteristics (living circumstances, daytime activity, and geographical location). Data were collected from 1264 individuals with mild or moderate ID levels and their proxies. QOL was assessed by the Escala Pessoal de Resultados (EPR), the Portuguese version of the Personal Outcomes Scale. The results showed that both sets of characteristics influenced the QOL scores of adults with ID. Furthermore, findings revealed that (a) the factors that strongly affected the QOL scores were diagnosis, age, living circumstances, and daytime activity; (b) the factors that strongly predicted the QOL scores were diagnosis, living circumstances, and daytime activity; and (c) the factors self-reported and reported by the proxies were similar. Implications for practitioners, service systems, and public policies that are directed towards addressing the supports of people with ID are discussed.

  • Exploring the Relationship between Quality of Life (EQ-5D) and Clinical
           Measures in Adult Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
    • Authors: Attila J. Pulay; István Bitter; Szilvia Papp; László Gulácsi; Márta Péntek; Valentin Brodszky; Noémi V. Hevér; Fanni Rencz; Petra Baji

      Abstract: Objective To explore the association between quality of life (QoL) and clinical measures in patients with adult Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD); as well as assess the work impairment related to the disease. Method A cross-sectional study was conducted in an outpatient clinic of a university hospital in Hungary between 2011–2013 (n = 75). QoL was measured by the European Quality of Life-5 Dimensions questionnaire (EQ-5D). Associations between EQ-5D and clinical measures such as physician’s assessment on a visual analogue scale (physician-VAS), Clinical Global Impression-Severity scale (CGI-S), and Conners’ Adult ADHD Rating Scale (CAARS) subscores were assessed by Spearman-correlation and linear regression models. Productivity loss was estimated using the Work Productivity and Activity Impairment Questionnaire (WPAI) questionnaire. Results The mean EQ-5D index and EQ VAS scores were 0.74(SD = 0.22) and 69.5(SD = 19.4), significantly lower than the scores of the age-matched general population. Significant correlations were found between EQ-5D index and clinical measures. No correlation was found between CAARS and physician-VAS, CGI-S. The regression models explained 44.0 % of the EQ-5D index variance. The productivity loss was estimated to 47.5 %. Conclusion To our knowledge, this study is the first to analyze the relationship between EQ-5D and clinical measures in adult ADHD in real world practice. Significant correlation between EQ-5D and the clinical measures suggests that EQ-5D is a sensitive measure of the health impairment related to ADHD and psychiatric co-morbidities, thus it contributes to a better understanding of the burden of adult ADHD. The lack of association between the CAARS and physicians’ measures requires further research.

  • Self-Objectification and Self-Sexualization Behavior within Consumer
    • Authors: Meysam H. Barzoki; Leila Mohtasham; Mahshid Shahidi; Mohamed Tavakol
      Pages: 425 - 438
      Abstract: Women and girls are subject to numerous sexually objectifying messages with serious consequences for their body and mind. This study is an attempt to demonstrate the consequences of self-objectification and the routine self-sexualization behavior of women within consumer culture. Using self-report online questionnaires and structural equation modeling, it was gathered responses from 381 Iranian married women who use internet on a daily basis. The results show that body surveillance is significant in the process of losing self-esteem, attempts at alleviating it through self-sexualization behavior, and finally the tendency to compulsive buying. The discussion focuses on the implications of these findings to explain the relationship among self-objectification, self-esteem and self-sexualization behavior.

  • Understanding Dispositional Hope in General and Clinical Populations
    • Authors: Macarena Espinoza; Guadalupe Molinari; Ernestina Etchemendy; Rocío Herrero; Cristina Botella; Rosa María Baños Rivera
      Pages: 439 - 450
      Abstract: Hope is a positive, future-thinking construct that is highly related to pursuing and achieving our personal goals. Considering its relevance for well-being and psychological adjustment, the purpose of this study is to explore the psychometric properties of the Spanish version of the Dispositional Hope Scale (DHS) (Snyder et al. in Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, 60(4), 570–585, 1991), its relation with important psychological health indicators (depression, hopelessness, optimism, general self-efficacy and quality of life), and examine the possible differences between clinical (CP) and general populations (GP). Sample was composed of 290 volunteers. Measures of hopelessness, depression, optimism, quality of life, self-efficacy, and positive-negative affect were administered. Hope was assessed again 1 month later to collect test-retest data. CFA supports the unidimensional structure. In addition, good internal consistency and test-retest values were found. Further, based on the one-factor model, results revealed that the Spanish DHS has strong factorial invariance across populations (GP and CP). The differences in the hope levels detected between CP and GP appear to be mainly associated with positive affect and depressive symptoms. Results broaden the existing data about the Spanish DHS and support its usefulness not only for research, but also for clinical purposes.

  • Acculturation of Immigrant Latinos into the U.S. Workplace: Evidence from
           the Working Hours-life Satisfaction Relationship
    • Authors: Rubia R. Valente; Brian J. L. Berry
      Pages: 451 - 479
      Abstract: This paper explores the working hours-happiness relationship of Latinos living in the United States and compares it with that of the host society. We find that immigrant Latinos have adopted American work-happiness relationships while having lower levels of subjective well-being. Acculturation plays an important role not only with respect to work attitudes, but also to social status, and it is the latter that affects the well-being of Latinos of color. Future quality-of-life research needs to analyze whether the dichotomy between work attitude and social status will persist or whether this vibrant and increasing group of immigrants who are so vital to the U.S. economy will both adapt to host society values and begin to introduce positive change in those values in a society where multiculturalism is on the rise.

  • Everyday Understandings of Happiness, Good Life, and Satisfaction: Three
           Different Facets of Well-being
    • Authors: Erik Carlquist; Pål Ulleberg; Antonella Delle Fave; Hilde E. Nafstad; Rolv M. Blakar
      Pages: 481 - 505
      Abstract: The need for increasing conceptual clarity within well-being research has been stressed by social scientists as well as policymakers and international organizations. The present study aimed to identify and compare conceptual structures of the everyday terms happiness, a good life, and satisfaction, based on a semi-stratified sample of Norwegian adults. Findings indicate that these terms share certain conceptual similarities, as used in everyday Norwegian language. For each term, it was possible to identify an underlying structure of conceptual configuration, articulated into external life domain components and internal, psychological dimensions. Relationship themes were prominent among the external domains for all three terms. Findings indicated that in Norwegian participants’ understanding, happiness and good life were highly inclusive of external life domains, whereas satisfaction primarily evoked associations to internal, psychological states and experiences. Latent class analyses highlighted differences among socio-demographic groups as concerns the degree to which different conceptualizations of the three terms were endorsed. Findings raise questions about the practice, relatively common in the applied social sciences, of treating happiness, good life and satisfaction as highly similar concepts, and the assumption that each term carries the same meaning for everyone.

  • 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
      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.

  • “You Shouldn’t Look at Us Strangely”: An Exploratory Study on
           Personal Perspectives on Quality of Life of Adolescents with Emotional and
           Behavioral Disorders in Residential Youth Care
    • Authors: Chris Swerts; Jessica De Maeyer; Marco Lombardi; Inge Waterschoot; Wouter Vanderplasschen; Claudia Claes
      Abstract: Adolescents with Emotional and Behavioral Disorders (EBD) have complex needs and experience challenges in various developmental areas and life domains. The majority of current studies regarding Quality of Life (QOL) among adolescents often adopt a quantitative design to assess health-related aspects of QOL. While considerable progress has been made in acknowledging the rights of children and adolescents to express their views on life and well-being, there remains a lack of research regarding adolescents with EBD and their personal perspectives on QOL. This qualitative study aims to address this gap. Focus groups (N = 6) were conducted with 25 adolescents aged 13 to 17 years living in a large-scale residential care organization. An expert panel, comprising six experts, was convened to classify the results from the focus groups (i.e., indicators) according to the QOL framework by Schalock and Verdugo (2002). An in-depth overview of the wide variety of aspects adolescents value with regard to their QOL was presented. The findings highlighted the importance of adopting a broad and holistic approach, instead of a traditional health-related and deficit-oriented one, when aiming to enhance the QOL of adolescents with EBD. Furthermore, several benefits for research and clinical practice relating to adolescents’ personal perspectives on QOL were discussed.

  • On the Concept of Well-Being in Japan: Feeling Shiawase as Hedonic
           Well-Being and Feeling Ikigai as Eudaimonic Well-Being
    • Authors: Michiko Kumano
      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.

  • Happiness is Flextime
    • Authors: Adam Okulicz-Kozaryn; Lonnie Golden
      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.

  • The Five Dimensions of Money Attitudes and Their Link to Changes in Life
           Satisfaction Among Taiwanese Adolescents in Poverty
    • Authors: Fang-Hua Jhang
      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.

  • Methodological Issues in Measuring Subjective Well-Being and
           Quality-of-Life: Applications to Assessment of Affect in Older,
           Chronically and Cognitively Impaired, Ethnically Diverse Groups Using the
           Feeling Tone Questionnaire
    • Authors: Jeanne A. Teresi; Katja Ocepek-Welikson; John A. Toner; Marjorie Kleinman; Mildred Ramirez; Joseph P. Eimicke; Barry J. Gurland; Albert Siu
      Abstract: Quality of life assessment includes measurement of positive affect. Methods artifacts associated with positively and negatively worded items can manifest as negative items loading on a second factor, despite the conceptual view that the items are measuring one underlying latent construct. Negatively worded items may elicit biased responses. Additionally, item-level response bias across ethnically diverse groups may compromise group comparisons. The aim was to illustrate methodological approaches to examining method factors and measurement equivalence in an affect measure with 9 positively and 7 negatively worded items: The Feeling Tone Questionnaire (FTQ). The sample included 4960 non-Hispanic White, 1144 non-Hispanic Black, and 517 Hispanic community and institutional residents receiving long-term supportive services. The mean age was 82 (s.d. = 11.0); 73% were female. Two thirds were cognitively impaired. Methods effects were assessed using confirmatory factor analyses (CFA), and reliability with McDonald’s omega and item response theory (IRT) generated estimates. Measurement equivalence was examined using IRT-based Wald tests. Methods effects associated with negatively worded items were observed; these provided little IRT information, and as a composite evidenced lower reliability. Both 13 and 9 item positive affect scales performed well in terms of model fit, reliability, IRT information, and evidenced little differential item functioning of high magnitude or impact. Both CFA and IRT approaches provided complementary methodological information about scale performance. The 9-item affect scale based on the FTQ can be recommended as a brief quality-of-life measure among frail and cognitively impaired individuals in palliative and long-term care settings.

  • The Relationships among Socio-Demographics, Perceived Health, and
    • Authors: Robert Weech-Maldonado; Michael J. Miller; Justin C. Lord
      Abstract: This article explores explore the relationships among socio-demographics, perceived health, and happiness in a patient population of 221 adults recruited from 39 primary care practices in Alabama. We also explored whether the relationship between socio-demographics and happiness is mediated by perceived health. The dependent variable, happiness, was dichotomized as happy versus unhappy. Independent variables or correlates of happiness included race (Black or White), age (< 65 years vs. 65 years and older), gender (male vs. female), perceived income (sufficient vs. insufficient to meet basic needs), health literacy (adequate vs. inadequate), and self-rated health (excellent/very good/good vs. poor/fair). Data were analyzed using generalized linear latent and mixed models to examine the relationship between happiness and its correlates. Our findings suggest that adequate health literacy and better perceived health are associated with an increase in the likelihood of happiness. In addition, the relationship between perceived sufficient income and happiness is mediated by perceived health; whereas, individuals with sufficient income are more likely to have better perceived health, and as a result more likely to be happy. Other individual factors, such as gender, age, and race were not significantly associated with being happy or having higher perceived health in any of the models. Results suggest that policies aimed at increasing health literacy, promoting health, and reducing income disparities may be associated with greater happiness.

  • Associations of Health-Related Quality of Life with Overall Quality of
           Life in the Patient Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System
           (PROMIS®) Project
    • Authors: Alina Palimaru; Ron D. Hays
      Abstract: Health-Related Quality of Life (HRQOL) and evaluative well-being (EWB) surveys are used at local and national level to monitor population health. Significant associations have been reported between HRQOL and EWB measures. Perceptions of overall quality of life are one type of EWB measure. This study estimates associations between a quality of life item and HRQOL items in two datasets (n = 21,133 and n = 2996) collected as part of the U.S. Patient Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System (PROMIS®) project. HRQOL measures accounted for 69% to 75% of variance in overall quality of life. The study provides further evidence about the empirical overlap between EWB and HRQOL. EWB researchers need to explicitly incorporate HRQOL measures and vice versa in their research. Future research is needed to determine the extent to which the associations between EWB and HRQOL vary by individual characteristics.
