    Az elégedettséget (szubjektív jóllétet) meghatározó tényezők között fontos szerepet játszik a jövedelmi mobilitás. Az egyes emberek jövedelmi pozícióik változását általában nem jövedelmi szintjük, hanem relatív helyzetük változása alapján ítélik meg. Tanulmányunkban ezért elsősorban a relatív jövedelmi mobilitás objektív és szubjektív mutatóinak az elégedettségre gyakorolt hatását elemezzük a 2000-2002 közötti időszakban, amikor rendkívül magas volt a reáljövedelmek növekedési üteme. Eredményeink azt igazolják, hogy Magyarországon a vizsgált időszakban a jövedelmükben felfelé mobil háztartások esetében a relatív jövedelmi pozíció emelkedése nem járt többletelégedettséggel, a javuló relatív helyzetűek kevésbé voltak elégedettek, mint amit elért jövedelmi szintjük indokolt volna. Ez a helyzet elsősorban az objektív változók bizonytalansága miatt áll elő, amikor a növekvő jövedelműek nem számítanak a pozitív trendek folytatódására. A marginális munkaerő-piaci helyzetben lévők jövedelmüktől függetlenül elégedetlenebbek, mint a többiek, és ez az elégedetlenség az érintettek más helyzetben lévő családtagjaira is átterjed. Ez a kör együttesen a magyar népesség közel egyharmadát teszi ki. A negatív munkaerő-piaci várakozások szintén az elégedettséget csökkentő tényezők.
