Life satisfaction: Effect size table

In partnership with

This excel file summarises the available size effects from our two life satisfaction reviews:

  1. Life Satisfaction Intervention Review: Collating international evidence on activities, programmes or services intended to improve individual life satisfaction.
  2. Life Satisfaction Determinants Review: Updating the evidence base using observational UK longitudinal data on broad factors that are associated with life satisfaction at a population-level.

The two rapid reviews were conducted in parallel, with complementary inclusion/exclusion criteria, search strategies, extraction and synthesis, and critical appraisal.

The table is for economists and policymakers and can be used to inform policy appraisal and to understand social value.
