Posted on

Workshop on Subjective Well-being and Demography – Integrating Subjective Well-being in the demographic research agenda
Side meeting at the Annual Meeting of the Population Association of America (PAA)

Chicago, United States, 26 April 2017: 1:00 PM-6:00 PM

Organized by the IUSSP Panel on Subjective Well-being and Demographic Events

Deadline for submissions: 1 March 2017.

The workshop will take place from 1 to 6 pm on the afternoon before the PAA Welcome Mixer (Wednesday, April 26, 2017).


With the ever increasing research interest in subjective well-being, also in demography, the purpose of the workshop is to establish a forum for academics to present their papers on subjective wellbeing and demographic processes. Priority will be given to papers that are not otherwise presented at the PAA conference. The workshop will take a broad and inclusive perspective. We welcome papers and research ideas/projects that consider subjective wellbeing either as a driver or an outcome, comparative or longitudinal (or both), developing or developed countries, and also papers of a more methodological nature (both in terms of statistical analysis, measurement and theory).

The workshop provides on opportunity for presentation of 6/7 research papers within the topics listed above.

The session will conclude with a round-table discussion organized by the IUSSP Panel.

You may submit a paper for consideration by the Programme Committee by Wednesday, March 1, 2017 at:
