Relativité de la satisfaction dans la vie : une étude sur données de panel

Cet article étudie l'hypothèse d'utilité relative selon laquelle l'utilité de l'individu dépend non seulement de ses propres caractéristiques mais aussi de termes interdépendants. Nous utilisons les données de la base German Socio-Economic Panel pour étudier la relation entre la satisfaction dans la vie (mesure subjective de l'utilité), le revenu et le revenu de référence. Ce dernier est défini comme le revenu moyen du Länder où réside l'individu. Nous retenons une spécification de type probit ordonné sur données de panel avec deux types d'effets spécifiques aléatoires : un effet individuel et un effet de ménage. Les résultats d'estimation confirment l'hypothèse d'utilité relative. L'hypothèse de la séparabilité de la fonction d'utilité par rapport au revenu et au revenu de référence est rejetée.
