SEARLE important variable for women (Table 2: Model 3). 05) is associated with lower odds of well-being improving. 01) then this is more likely to be associated with improvements in their well-being. Promoting well-being, among women, may also be linked with education and the motivation towards self-fulfilment. 05) (Table 2)6. Previous research has shown a tendency for life satisfaction, or happiness, to increase with educational achievement (Blanchflower and Oswald, 2002; Inglehart, 1990), although Veenhoven (1984) found that the relationship was stronger in poor countries than in rich ones.

Based on this division, the research reported here addresses a gap in current knowledge through exploring the circumstances under which well-being could be promoted by looking at those whose well-being improved from the low or moderate level in 1994–1996 to the high level in 1997–1999. Using logistic regression the research was conducted in two phases. 4 In the second phase only those variables which were significantly associated with improved well-being in phase one were used (shown in italics in Table 1).

Global measures such as satisfaction with life overall may only assess subjective well-being at a higher more abstract level and are unable to capture the complex nature of factors that may influence lower levels of well-being which focus on goals of a more immediate nature. A more diverse measure, such as the adapted GHQ12 used here, is needed in order to validly access the positive and negative emotions associated with the promotion of high well-being. The results have found that objective income is not a good predictor of well-being, when other variables are controlled for.
