The Influence of Religiosity on Well-Being in Russia
2019
The current paper examines the relationship between religiosity and well-being in Russia in the period from 1990 to 2011. Life satisfaction is used as a measure for well-being. Based on longitudinal data of World Values Survey , the analysis shows that life satisfaction of russians is positively significantly increased by the level of importance of God and religion in life of people, and negatively significantly reduced by believing in heaven. Thus, in this study life satisfaction is measured as ordinal qualitative regressor. The model was estimated by Fixed Effects. Overall, results partially provide a source of evidence of correlates between few dimensions of religiosity and life satisfaction in Russia, which is compatible with the results of other research papers that analyzed other countries.
