Abstract

Work and life satisfaction depend on a number of pecuniary and non-pecuniary factors at the workplace and determine these in turn. We analyze these causal linkages using a structural vector autoregression approach for a German sample of the working populace from 1984 to 2008, finding that workplace autonomy plays an important causal role in determining well-being.
