Positive Orientation-a Common Base for Hedonistic and Eudemonistic Happiness?

Appl Res Qual Life 2018 3;13(1):105-117. Epub 2017 Feb 3.

Department of Personality Psychology, Institute of Psychology, John Paul II Catholic University of Lublin, Al. Raclawickie 14, 20-850 Lublin, Poland.

Positive orientation (PO) is proposed as a common base for hedonistic and eudemonistic senses of happiness. PO involves a tendency to formulate positive judgments concerning the self, one's personal life, and the future. Previously, PO had been investigated in the context of the hedonistic approach to well-being. Read More

Social Progress in Spanish Municipalities (2001-2011).

Appl Res Qual Life 2017 27;12(4):997-1019. Epub 2016 Dec 27.

University of Oviedo, Av. Cristo s/n, 33006 Oviedo, Spain.

This paper proposes a methodology for the assessment of social progress in the biggest Spanish municipalities between years 2001 and 2011. We follow recent descriptions of QoL to elaborate a measurement framework composed of eight dimensions, for which 16 subindicators are elaborated from information collected using different data sources. Weight constrained Data Envelopment Analysis is used to estimate QoL composite indicators in both periods and to compute a Malmquist index of social progress, which assesses the evolution of the indicators during the decade.

Trajectories of Personal Well-Being Attributes Among High School Students in Hong Kong.

Appl Res Qual Life 2017 27;12(4):841-866. Epub 2016 Oct 27.

Department of Applied Social Sciences, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, Hong Kong, Hong Kong.

How personal well-being of adolescents changes over the high school period is not entirely clear in the scientific literature. Using 15 positive youth development (PYD) attributes as indicators of well-being, the current study investigated the related developmental trajectories among a large sample of Hong Kong adolescents from Grade 7 to Grade 12. Individual growth curve modeling revealed that while variation existed across different PYD attributes, nine out of 15 positive youth development attributes declined in the early adolescence but showed a rebound or a slower rate of decline in the late adolescence.

Socially Inclusive Development: The Foundations for Decent Societies in East and Southern Africa.

Appl Res Qual Life 2017 7;12(4):813-839. Epub 2016 Nov 7.

School of Social Sciences, University of Aberdeen, Aberdeen, UK.

This article is concerned with how social processes and social provision are conceptualised and measured in societies in order to offer guidance on how to improve developmental progress. Significant advances have been made in developing multidimensional measures of development, but they provide little guidance to governments on how to build sustainable societies. We argue for the need to develop a theoretically informed social and policy framework that permits the foundations for building decent societies to be put in place by governments. Read More

Well-Being During Recession in the UK.

Appl Res Qual Life 2017 29;12(2):369-387. Epub 2016 Apr 29.

University of Oxford, Oxford, UK.

This article explores the impact of the recent recession on the well-being of the UK working age population by comparing two measures of well-being. One is a measure of evaluative subjective well-being, a measure which previous research has shown to be stable in the UK throughout the economic crisis. The second is a different but complementary measure of positive psychological health. Read More

Methodological issues in measuring subjective well-being and quality-of-life: Applications to assessment of affect in older, chronically and cognitively impaired, ethnically diverse groups using the Feeling Tone Questionnaire.

Appl Res Qual Life 2017 Jun 4;12(2):251-288. Epub 2017 Apr 4.

Brookdale Department of Geriatrics and Palliative Medicine, Mount Sinai School of Medicine.

Quality of life assessment includes measurement of positive affect. Methods artifacts associated with positively and negatively worded items can manifest as negative items loading on a second factor, despite the conceptual view that the items are measuring one underlying latent construct. Negatively worded items may elicit biased responses. Read More

Examination of Life Satisfaction, Child Maltreatment Potential and Substance Use in Mothers Referred for Treatment by Child Protective Services for Child Neglect and Substance Abuse: Implications for Intervention Planning.

Appl Res Qual Life 2016 Sep 20;11(3):805-816. Epub 2015 Mar 20.

University of Nevada, Las Vegas.

There is evidence to suggest mothers who are served by child protective service agencies are relatively dissatisfied in their lives, leading some investigators to conclude life dissatisfaction may be associated with child maltreatment. To assist in better understanding this relationship the Life Satisfaction Scale for Caregivers (LSSC) was psychometrically developed in a sample of 72 mothers who were referred for behavioral treatment for child neglect and substance abuse by caseworkers from a local child protective service agency. The LSSC was developed to assess mothers' happiness in nine domains (family, friendships, employment/work, spirituality/religion, safety, sex life/dating, ability to avoid drugs, ability to avoid alcohol, control over one's own life).

Quality of Life and Self-Determination: Youth with Chronic Health Conditions Make the Connection.

Appl Res Qual Life 2016;11:571-599. Epub 2015 Jan 7.

Bloorview Research Institute, 150 Kilgour Road, Toronto, ON Canada M4G 1R8.

While optimizing quality of life (QOL) is a key goal of rehabilitation care, no previous study has reported on what 'QOL' means to youth with chronic health conditions. In addition, no qualitative studies have explored the relationship between QOL and self-determination (SD). Objectives of this qualitative study were to examine: what the terms 'quality of life' and 'self-determination' mean to youth with chronic conditions; the factors these youth think are linked with these concepts; the relationship they see between concepts, the types of future goals youth have and how they view the connection between their SD and these goals.

A Measure to Target Antipoverty Policies in the European Union Regions.

Appl Res Qual Life 2016;11:181-207. Epub 2014 Sep 16.

European Commission, Joint Research Centre, Econometrics and Applied Statistics Unit, Ispra, IT Italy.

The reformed cohesion policy (CP), which is the major investment tool in the European Union (EU) for delivering the Europe 2020 targets, will soon make available substantial funds to improve the quality of life of the EU citizens through supporting the economic and social development of the EU's regions and cities. Because the reformed CP has intensified the emphasis on measuring results, also with respect to reducing poverty and social exclusion, this paper is about measuring poverty to better target EU local policies. We propose a measurement of poverty at the sub-national level in the EU by means of three poverty components describing absolute poverty, relative poverty and earnings and incomes. Read More

The Needs for Quality Urban Rail Transit Life in Asian Metropolitan Cities.

Appl Res Qual Life 2015;10(4):647-665. Epub 2014 Jul 14.

The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, Hunghom, Kowloon Hong Kong.

The quality of people's lives in Asia has improved markedly since 2nd World War, with developing economies allowing people to pursue multifaceted lives instead of just working to meet basic physical requirements. In the last 30 to 40 years, urbanization in Asia has led to the emergence of urban rail transit (URT) systems in many cities. URT has become a significant part of city life, and the quality of a city's URT experience has become a significant social issue. Read More

Is Easy Access Related to Better Life? Walkability and Overlapping of Personal and Communal Identity as Predictors of Quality of Life.

Appl Res Qual Life 2014 13;9:505-516. Epub 2013 Jun 13.

Institute of Psychology, University of Gdansk, ul. Bażyńskiego 4, 80-952 Gdańsk, Poland.

Two studies ( = 190 and  = 447) were conducted to investigate the link between living in walkable neighborhoods and satisfaction with life in a city. Additionally, we explore possible mediators of this relationship. In both studies walkability was a significant predictor of perceived quality of life in a city, and overlap between personal and communal identity (in Study 1 and Study 2) and city identification (Study 2) were mediators of the walkability-quality of life relation.

Maternal & Child Health Comparative Effectiveness Research Group, Department of Epidemiology & Biostatistics, College of Public Health, University of South Florida, 13201 Bruce B. Downs Blvd., MDC 56, Tampa, FL 33612, USA.

Quality of life has emerged as an essential health component that broadens the traditionally narrow concerns focused on only morbidity and life expectancy. Although a growing number of tools to measure quality of life are in circulation, there is a lack of guidelines as well as rigorous assessment for their use with pregnant and postpartum populations. It is also unclear whether these instruments could validly be employed to measure patient-reported outcomes in comparative effectiveness research of maternal care interventions. Read More

Spiritual Well-Being and Health-Related Quality of Life Among African-American Women with HIV/AIDS.

Appl Res Qual Life 2011 Jun;6(2):139-157

Nell Hodgson Woodruff School of Nursing, Emory University, Atlanta, GA 30322, USA.

Many HIV-positive women regard spirituality as an important part of their lives and spirituality may have positive impact on their health-related quality of life (HRQOL). Particularly among African American women with HIV, spirituality may serve as a cultural and psychological resource. This descriptive, crosssectional study examined associations between spiritual well-being (SWB) and its components, existential well-being (EWB) and religious well-being (RWB), and dimensions of HRQOL among a non-random sample of 118 African American HIV-positive women.
