Title Life satisfaction across life course transitions [Reprint]
Document type Journal article
Journal source Journal of the Home Economics Institute of Australia 1322-9974 v. 22 no. 2 2015: 15-27
Abstract Does life satisfaction improve or decline as people grow older? What happens to people's outlook as they pass through the common events of life? This paper investigates trends and patterns in life satisfaction across the life course, using data from the Household, Income and Labour Dynamics in Australia (HILDA) Survey. Almost 27,000 people aged 15 years and older were followed for over a decade as they navigated through seven transition events - leaving the parental home, forming a relationship, having children, relationship separation, becoming 'empty nesters', retirement, and the death of a partner. The findings show how life satisfaction changes over time and the differences and similarities in how men and women respond to events.
