SCORSOLINI-COMIN, Fabio e SANTOS, Manoel Antonio dos. Positive affection measurement: subjective well-being in married people. Psicol. Reflex. Crit. [online]. 2012, vol.25, n.1, pp. 11-20. ISSN 0102-7972. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-79722012000100003.
The study analyzed the correlations among the different factors of subjective well-being (SWB) using a sample of 106 married people with an average of 16.11 years of marriage. The following instruments were used: Sociodemographic Questionnaire, Socioeconomic Questionnaire, and Subjective Well-being Scale (SWBS). Data analyses were conducted using the Software R and a multivariate model to understand the correlations among the factors of the SWBS. All factors of the SWBS were significantly inter-correlated, which confirm the results of the scale validation study. Future studies are necessary to evaluate the SWB in couples (dyads), which can help to understand whether this concept is influenced by the spouse or only by the marital status.
