Title Subjective Well-being Of Spanish Workers: Continuous Voluntary Web Survey Examination
Year 2012
Access date 05.04.2013

This paper studies subjective well-being determinants focusing extensively on the role of working conditions. Large dataset on Spanish workers has been obtained from web surveys conducted between 2005 and 2011. First data quality is tested against a traditional probability survey. Owing to a large sample size, estimates from life-satisfaction model with standard variables confirm that results based on web-survey data align better with findings generally accepted by the existing literature. Second, we augment the model to explore the role of workrelated explanatory variables which are not commonly included in traditional surveys. Finally, the paper opens opportunities for future research also by encouraging the communication between life-satisfaction researchers, labor economist and web survey methodologist.
