This chapter applies the methodology introduced for analysing financial satisfaction to various other domains of life such health, job, housing, and marriage. The analysis is based on data from the German Socio-Economic Panel Survey and British Household Panel Survey. It is argued that domain satisfactions may be dealt with as normal discretely observable variables.

Keywords: domain satisfaction; German Socio-Economic Panel Survey; British Household Panel Survey; health satisfaction; job satisfaction; financial satisfaction; housing satisfaction; leisure satisfaction; environmental satisfaction; marriage
