This chapter describes in detail the factors associated with maintaining and promoting subjective well-being. It reports the findings of new statistical analyses with reference to socio-economic, social, health and spatial factors as well as levels of satisfaction with different aspects of life, based on data from the first nine waves (1991–99) of the British Household Panel Survey (BHPS). The findings suggest that improving and maintaining high levels of well-being are not directly associated with affluence.

Keywords:   socioeconomics, sociology, health, affluence, wealth, UK, Great Britain, statistics, statistical analysis
