Les mesures du bien etre subjectif occupent une place de plus en plus importante dans les discussions strategiques qui se tiennent a l'echelle internationale concernant la question de savoir quel est le meilleur moyen de mesurer le et le bien etre des populations nationales. Ce point a des consequences pour les organismes statistiques nationaux, car on leur demande d'incorporer a leurs enquetes menages des mesures du bien etre subjectif (Organisation de cooperation et de developpement economiques, 2013). Cela fait 25 ans que Statistique Canada incorpore a ses enquetes des mesures du bien etre subjectif - particulierement la satisfaction a l'egard de la vie - quoique le libelle des questions et les categories de reponses aient evolue avec le temps. Ainsi, l'Enquete sociale generale (ESG) et l'Enquete sur la sante dans les collectivites canadiennes (ESCC) de Statistique Canada fournissent une bonne occasion de proceder a un examen de la stabilite des reponses aux questions sur la satisfaction a l'egard de la vie et de leurs correlats au fil des ans a l'interieur d'un cadre analytique coherent.
