For example, “Divorce and separation appear to have neutral or negative short-term impacts followed by a positive long-term consequence. 129-130). Most have also assumed that the impact of certain kinds of events is the same for all individuals, which is contrary to what we know about “individual differences in values and judgement standards”. 22 ALEX C. MICHALOS Headey, Veenhoven and Wearing (1991) reported results from four waves of an Australian panel study conducted in the state of Victoria, involving samples ranging from 942 in 1981 to 649 in 1987.

The two papers by Michalos (1980a, 1985) are closely related to each other, and also to Veenhoven (1994).

Here it only has to be recorded that in the 1980a and 1985 papers, as in many of my other scientific investigations, the primary motive was an interest in finding a reliable and valid general theory of human well-being that could be the foundation for a naturalistic moral theory.
