Happiness Quantified

Bernard Van Praag

Oxford University Press

This chapter applies the three-layer model of job satisfaction discussed in Chapter 4 to political satisfactions. A survey of political satisfaction in the Netherlands is studied, wherein an individual’s satisfaction with government policy is considered analogous to life as a whole, and satisfaction with policies on health, employment, migration, income, etc. is analogous to the breakdown with respect to life domains. It is shown that political satisfaction may be broken down into a number of satisfactions with political aspects, i.e., political-sub-domains. Political satisfaction is a significant component of general satisfaction with life as a whole.

Keywords:   Netherlands, political satisfaction, three-layer model, domain satisfaction, general satisfaction
