Date: Thu. February 9th, 2017, 12:00 pm-1:30 pm
Location: Mandel Community Center, Room 115

Daphna Gross-Manos, PhD in Social Work
Postdoctoral Scholar, CWRU Anthropology Department

Postdoctoral Scholar, Daphna Gross-Manos, PhD, will discuss the relationship between material situation and happiness among children using the findings of the International Survey of Children’s Well-Being. While household income is almost exclusively used as a proxy for a child’s material situation, Gross-Manos will review two alternative measures for children’s material situation and subjective well-being across 16 countries. Possible implications for social policy will be discussed, as well as some highlights for specific countries.
