This chapter unveils some of the mystery surrounding the factors which are associated with life satisfaction, and discusses how these factors interact with each other. It also presents an analysis of the factors associated with experiences of positive well-being in both the short and the long term. The data are contained in the first nine waves (1991–99) of the British Household Panel Survey (BHPS). This chapter also explains the distribution of subjective well-being over nine years at the national level before examining in finer detail the circumstances under which individuals report positive subjective well-being.
