In this paper, Natalia Soboleva (National Program Director of EVS in Russia and member of the Theory Group of EVS) uses EVS data to explore the effect of work values and socio-demographic characteristics upon the link between life satisfaction and job satisfaction.


Socio-demographic characteristics matter more than work values in explaining the effect of job satisfaction on life satisfaction. The association between life satisfaction and job satisfaction is stronger for higher educated individuals and those who are self-employed and weaker for women, married individuals, religious individuals and those who are younger. Extrinsic and intrinsic work values significantly influence life satisfaction independent of the level of job satisfaction.
