Spiritual Well-Being Scale (SWB)

 


Scale name: Spiritual Well-Being Scale (SWB)

Scale overview: The Spiritual Well-Being Scale (SWB) is a self-report 29-item measure of spiritual wellbeing. There are two subscales: 10-items assess Existential Well-Being (EWB) and 10 assess Religious Well-Being (RWB).

 Response Type: Items are rated on a 6-point scale of agreement:

SA   Strongly Agree

MA   Moderately Agree

A   Agree

D   Disagree

MD   Moderately Disagree

SD   Strongly Disagree

See the manual for scoring instructions.

Scale items

Please see the freely available scale pdf for the items in your preferred language.

 

Reliability: See the manual page 3.

The RWBS, EWBS, and SWBS have good reliability. For the RWBS, test-retest reliability coefficients across four studies, with 1-10 weeks between testings, are .96, .99,

.96, and .88. For the EWBS, the coefficients are .86, .98, .98, and .73. For total SWBS,

the coefficients are .93, .99, .99, and .82.

The index of internal consistency, coefficient alpha, also shows high reliability. Across 7 samples, the internal consistency coefficients ranged from .82 to .94 (RWB), .78 to .86 (EWB), and .89 to .94 (SWB) (Bufford, Paloutzian, & Ellison, 1991).

Validity:

See the manual page 4.

SWB, RWB, and EWB are correlated positively with a positive self-concept, sense of purpose in life, physical health, and emotional adjustment. They are negatively correlated with ill health, emotional maladjustment, and lack of purpose in life (Bufford, Paloutzian, & Ellison, 1991). See Paloutzian et al., (2012, 2021) for more extensive and up-to-date information.

GENEROSITY-How to Measure Generosity

Giving on a large scale and in a socially responsible manner has been called philanthropy. For obvious reasons, people have studied philanthropy and philanthropists.





Generous givers fund large scale projects like hospitals and disease research. Some give to establish schools and museums. There are many ways wealthy people use their resources to benefit others.

Fortunately, generosity is not restricted to the super wealthy. Everyday people give their time and talents to benefit local charities or support an organization known for helping people in need throughout the world.

Philanthropy is often studied with gratitude and compassion.

The Philanthropy Scale is a 7-item Likert-type scale. Schuyt, Smit, and Bekkers developed the scale  and presented the results at a 2004 conference in Los Angeles, CA.

Each of the 7-items is rated as: 1 = disagree completely, 2 = Disagree, 3 = Neither Agree nor Disagree, 4 = Agree, 5 = agree completely.

Scoring: Reverse score the items 2,5, and 7 then add the scores.

Items 


1. We have to leave this world a better place for the next generation.

2. Each generation has to solve its own problems.

3. Society is in danger because people are less concerned about each
other nowadays.

4. The world needs responsible citizens.

5. The world community relies on international politics and
corporations, and that is a good thing.

6. I give money to charitable causes, no matter what the government
does.

7. Charity and public benefit should be supported by the government,
and not by citizens and business corporations.
