Abstract:
Starting in 2012, a CAPI version of the Day Reconstruction Method was given to 2,050 respondents of the SOEP Innovation Sample. For each episode of the previous day, respondents reported up to two activities and a general rating of pleasantness. In 2014, the Experience Sampling Method was used with around 250 respondents, who were given smart phones, and they used them to complete short questionnaires on what they were currently doing and how they were feeling. In combination, the data allow connecting global ratings of life satisfaction with episodic reconstructions of the previous day, and realtime measurements of wellbeing.
