Relative status and satisfaction


Boes, Stefan; Staub, Kevin E; Winkelmann, Rainer (2010). Relative status and satisfaction. Economics Letters, 109(3):168-170.

Abstract

This paper studies the effect of income rank on satisfaction. We hypothesize that a person's satisfaction depends on a comparison of own rank and rank of one's parents. Estimates using data from the German Socio-Economic Panel support the relative rank hypothesis.
