Abstract

Subjective well-being consists of a subjective evaluation and integration of happiness
about specific life domains to the extent that one thinks well of and feels good
about these domains. Three functional measurement experiments investigated how
information on life domains is integrated into a global rating of well-being. There
is good evidence that integration of life domains obeys an averaging law. This implies
that when people judge one s well-being, information about one domain can
compensate information about some other domain.
