The chapter presents individual and country level factors of two types of national pride derived from D.Kahneman theory of human cognition. The multilevel regression anaysis of the ISSp-2003 data shows that the two types of national pride are primarily determined by different sets of factors.
Ambiguity attitudes have been prominently used in economic models, but we still know little about their demographic correlates or their generalizability beyond the West. We analyze the ambiguity attitudes of almost 3,000 students across thirty countries. For gains, we find ambiguity aversion everywhere, while ambiguity aversion is much weaker for losses. Ambiguity attitudes change systematically with probabilities for both gains and losses. Much of the between-country variation can be explained through a few macroeconomic characteristics. In contrast, we find massive unexplained variation at the individual level. We also find much unexplained heterogeneity in individual responses to different decision tasks.
The current paper provides a brief overview of subjective well-being studies in Russia. The authors analyze definitions and measurement of such concepts as «subjective quality of life», «social mood», «social well-being». The concept of «social well-being», which has the widest application among Russian social researchers, has two possible interpretations. Only its narrow interpretation can be treated as an analogue of subjective well-being. The paper also describes existing Russian and cross-country datasets which can be used for investigation of time trends and cross-country variation of subjective well-being.
