Lifecycle Events and Their Consequences

This chapter examines the relationship between disability and subjective well-being. The findings show that having a work-limiting disability is associated with lower levels of self-reported life satisfaction and subjective well-being. Although the effect is mitigated somewhat by employment, income, and wealth, it remains a salient determinant of differences in subjective well-being between those with and without disabilities.

Keywords:   disability, subjective well-being, life-satisfaction
