Sammanfattning

What is perceived as significant for well-being can vary between individuals. We addressed how older people (55-79y) emphasize the importance of various aspects of life for their personal well-being. The empirical study is based on the GOAL study from 2005. Overall, gender-differences were not pronounced, but gender and age were intertwined on what is important for well-being. The most important things for subjective well-being covered health, social relations, and surroundings of daily life. Later in life, enabling home-like environment, capability to perform preferred everyday activities and possibilities for self-expression have an exceptional value.
