Measuring Subjective Quality of Life in Macao: Application of the International Wellbeing Index

 

Abstract:
The International Wellbeing Index (IWI) is a set of subjective quality of life indicators that has been developed in Australia and applied in several cultural settings. This study investigates the psychometric performance of the IWI for ethnic Chinese. The IWI was applied in 2007 in Macao SAR, China. The previously established factor structure of each of the IWI's two sub-indices haas been confirmed for the ethnic Chinese population, providing further evidence of the IWI's cross-cultural validity. However, the percentage of variance explained by each of the IWI's sub-indices in Macao was different from that reported elsewhere. The findings revealed strong psychometric performance and demonstrated the validity and reliability of the IWI in Macao.
