Happiness is commonly measured using single direct questions such as “Taking all together, how happy would you say you are these days? Please indicate with a number between 0 and 10, where 0 stand for completely unhappy and 10 for complete ly happy’” . Questions of this kind are also used for measuring satisfaction in particular life-domains, such as satisfaction with one’s job. This method assumes that people can adequately retrieve how satisfied they have been over periods such as ‘these days’.
