Sažetak

Aim To examine the differences in subjective well-being among people
with different household income.
Method Data were obtained from the national survey conducted in June
2005, in which a representative sample of 896 participants were administered
a questionnaire on several measures of subjective well-being as
follows: happiness, life satisfaction, and satisfaction with different life
domains (personal and national well-being index). One-way ANOVA
was performed to test the differences in subjective well-being measures
between participants grouped into six categories according to their
monthly income.
Results Happiness and life satisfaction ratings, as well as ratings of satisfaction
with several life domains differed significantly between groups
of people with different monthly income. Respondents with higher income
felt happier (P<0.001), more satisfied with their life as a whole
(P<0.001), more satisfied with their material status (P<0.001), health
(P<0.001), achievement (P<0.001), future security (P = 0.001), economic situation (P = 0.001), state of the environment (P = 0.003), and social conditions in Croatia (P = 0.003). However, no significant differences were found between the two groups with the lowest income (€0-70 and €71-130 per person per month), nor between the two groups with the highest income (€401-530 and €531+ per person per month). Conclusion Our study showed that income and material wealth had an influence on subjective well-being in contemporary Croatian society, which is undergoing major social and economical changes.
