Subjective well-being among preadolescents - Evidence from urban China
AbstractWe examine what factors are correlated with subjective well-being among Chinese preadolescents. In particular, we investigate whether preadolescents’ subjective well-being is correlated with their parents’ subjective well-being. Interestingly, we find that the factors that affect parents’ subjective well-being do not influence their preadolescents’ subjective well-being, nor is there a significant correlation between the preadolescents’ subjective well-being and the well-being of their parents. Instead, we find that factors such as number of close friends, not being bullied, and spending time and conversing with parents are positively correlated with preadolescents´ subjective well-being. Another interesting finding is that preadolescents´ well-being does not seem to be correlated with their school performance.
