This article analyses by age two of the current measures of national well-being: ‘satisfaction with income’ and ‘those who are finding their financial situation quite or very difficult’ and their effects on and their relationship to well-being. There will also be some indication of change in perceived financial situation over time and other characteristics of individuals. The data used will be from Understanding Society, the UKHLS.
