Satisfação com a vida no Brasil: uma exploração de correlatos teóricos e variações de idade, período e coorte usando o World Values Survey (1991-2014)

Palavras-chave: Satisfação com a vida, Brasil, World Values Survey

Resumo

Esse artigo analisa fatores relacionados à satisfação com a vida no Brasil, utilizando as quatro ondas da pesquisa World Values Survey (1991 até 2014). Foram confirmados alguns resultados já descritos na literatura, tais como pessoas casadas, mais saudáveis, empregadas, mais religiosas e que tinham maior controle sobre a própria vida e melhor condição financeira se consideravam mais satisfeitas com a vida. Quanto às variáveis idade e coorte, os resultados foram não significativos quando analisados com fatores correlacionados com a satisfação com a vida. Quando diferentes coortes foram analisadas separadamente, os resultados sugeriram que a satisfação com a vida se mostrou relacionada com fatores históricos e conjunturais representados pelos efeitos de períodos.
