The research entitled ‘Multilevel Analysis of Child and Adolescent Subjective Well-Being across 14 Countries: Child- and Country-Level Predictors,’ supports a model of child well-being that focuses on healthy contexts and relationships in children’s lives.
The study tested an ecological, relationship-based model of children’s subjective well-being with a sample of over 25,000 children ages 9-14 years old from 14 countries across Africa, Asia, Europe, North America, and South America.
Findings indicated that prediction of child well-being varied across countries. Child perceptions of their various environments and relationships were much more predictive of their well-being than were country level factors such as GDP and income inequality.
