English title: Ethnic differentiations in satisfaction evaluations: Estonia’s distinctions in the European context

Author(s): Anu Masso -

Language: English

Type: Book chapter

Year: 2009


The chapter analyses life satisfaction from the aspect of ethnicity. The analysis in this chapter confirms the previous results indicating that the significant factors affecting the formation of life satisfaction in Estonia involve the individual’s age, citizenship, education, and material welfare. This analysis shows that in the European context Estonia is quite distinctive, because people’s satisfaction evaluations are strongly related to their ethnic background and citizenship – the 2006 European Social Survey data on 25 countries indicated that both variables – ethnic affiliation and citizenship – have a strong association with life satisfaction.
