Subjective Happiness Scale (SHS)


Happiness may be the quintessential positive feeling state. We commonly wish others a happy birthday or anniversary. 

The Subjective Happiness Scale is a short four-item survey developed by Sonja Lyubomirsky and Heidi Lepper (1999) and has been completed by thousands of respondents. 

The items are rated on 7-point scales that use different words to describe the end points. 

A sample item calls for ratings of less happy (1) to more happy (7): “Compared to most of my peers, I consider myself…”
