About the study
The Satisfaction With Life Scale (SWLS) was developed in 1985 by Diener et al. and has since been heavily used as a measure of the life satisfaction component of subjective well-being. The SWLS is a 7-point Likert style response scale, where the results range from 5 to 35, with 20 being a neutral score.
Its results have been found to correlate with measures of mental health and be predictive of future outcomes. In the area of health psychology, the SWLS has been used in the assessment of people experiencing serious health concerns.
