About a year ago, in recognition of the importance of measuring subjective well-being in surveys and the challenges it presents, Statistics in Transition new series (SiT) announced a plan to publish an issue containing a collection of papers on statistically relevant aspects of research on subjective well-being. This thematic issue of SiT is the result of that plan. It contains a set of original papers especially produced for this occasion that present some recent advances in surveybased research on subjective well-being. The main objective of this issue is to provide readers with an understanding of the conceptual and methodological, as well as practical and institutional, matters involved in collecting and analysing data in nation-wide studies of subjective well-being, in multi-national contexts. The papers collected in this issue examine the key problems in measuring subjective well-being in the survey context, with an emphasis on strategies for developing effective measures of subjective well-being, including for crosscultural comparisons.
