Public Policy Satisfaction and Subjective Well-Being

This study examined the relationship between public policy satisfactions and subjective well-being. In addition, we compared subjective well-beings between different income, age, and education groups in the context of policy satisfactions. Data were from a random telephone survey conducted in Beijing among 2,113 consumers. Findings from structural equation modeling indicate satisfactions for social security and income distribution policies are positively associated with subjective well-being; higher income groups had both higher work and life satisfactions; the mid-aged had the lowest life satisfaction but highest work satisfaction; education had a positive association with work satisfaction.
