Using the 1-7 scale below, indicate how much each of the following statements applies for you.
A  My life is largely going the way I wanted
B  My living conditions are excellent
C  I am satisfied with my life
D  So far, I have gotten the important things I want in life

Answers rated:
7  applies completely
...
1  applies not at all

Computation: A+B+C+D divided by 4

(In the original scale item 5 reads: 'If I could live my life over, I would change nothing'. This item is left out in this selection because a positive answer to this question does not necessarily mean that the respondent doesn't like the life he/she actually lives.)
